I do not like black cats
They tell me that we are not eternal,
That we shall forget my poems,
They speak to me gutters,
Girls who rise on roofs,
Dreams which I would never catch,
I do not like black cats,
I do not like breathing under the Eiffel Tower,
They tell me that books belong to them,
That they make of me what they want,
They scratch me,
I do not like obeying cats,even they are black.

Aww! That's too bad 'cuz I like cats. They behave as well as I do! Good poem though.

I want to die in my sleep like my grandfather...not like the passengers screaming in the back of his car.

Actually I have a very sweet, lovable black cat (my third). I consider black cats to be good luck.

you don't like breathing under the Eiffel tower or you don't like black cats breathing?

I have never worked out cats, they look up at you with wide jade eyes which seem to know much more than you do. They sample every chair on which to sprawl and always choose the most comfortable one as their resting place.
They accept pampering as their right then reward you by peeing on your favourite plant.
Nice poem, enjoyed.

Cari.
