A cat sat on my car hood one day
As I sat shivering
Eyeing a hummingbird in the morning sun.
It was far from still
And in this small moment, it was racing
Twenty heartbeats to my one.
The cat eyed me suspicously
As I puffed on a cigarette
Rather hesitantly. But I am a heretic
From the word go, if anyone really
Cares to know.
Then, in formation
Geese flew overhead.
And for some unknown reason
Retained this image of cat and bird Instead.
I sat in that car in early light
Because discordance now creeps
And the ever prevalent universal he
Has penetrated my dreaming sleep.
He has asked,
Do you prefer bread or bisquit
And I have had no answer.
So suffer me no sufferance
And make me pay no penance
For shall cat and bird dance
In moonlight high
Or will they only distantly
From afar, see eye to eye?
And will you brush my cheek gently
And linger like the scent of ginger
As I mercilessly must comply?
And can you provide an answer to
All questions why?
Let it be said:
There is no need to bother with reply
If you already know the answer.

This is indeed excellent writing, Soleil. I've read it twice and am going back for a third helping. Thank you.
