Any Life Is Better Than No Life At All 2010

          Any Life Is Better Than No Life At All

K. has brought the cages out;

Breezy, balmy,

Summer-stormy.

How they love it: Birdie, Toby –

In all winter. But

There’s also Albert Cat,

Striped, cheeky,

Trying to gain entry,

Paws compressed

Between the bars, he squirms,

Wormier than worms.

Birdie – beaky,

Toby – blind, born lame,

His crippled self,

Intuitively shifting shelf.

Resigned, bored or confounded

Albert drops his cause,

Takes a pause,

(Oh no, he’s back, the rascal, Planning, steady…

But then, I am also ready,

All of us congenial.
