Tiny Dancer

By |February 11th, 2016|

My total name is Tina And I’m a full-time ballerina. The Geoffrey and the ABT Vie to sign me exclusively. I feel for all those less-gifted pets Who can’t muster jetes or pirouettes. My legs are about a mile long And I accompany myself with sopranic song Hitting notes, supersonically high, That make my person’s [...]

A Debonair Defense

By |January 27th, 2016|

I’m a metrosexual cat Whose many admirers notice that My nails are clipped, I’m microchipped, And my hirsute neck is set With a leather collar in violet. My thick ginger coat blindly shines With the stolen butters I’ve made mine; Double-0 Seven, Sean Connery, That’s what you’ll think when you see me. As an accomplished [...]

Keep Out

By |January 6th, 2016|

I like to lie across the stair, Confident I’m most annoying there, And when a dog tries to pass by I growl and give my gimlet eye. If she or he nonetheless proceeds, I unleash a double-swat with my paw, That lands like lightening on their jaw. The kitchen is what I protect, Just two [...]

Gracie Notes

By |December 9th, 2015|

With a tricolor carriage, long and low, I’ve always been fond of taking it slow. Nose-to-the-ground is my best yoga pose And I assume it with more grace than those Who tout their mile-high four-packs of legs. Oh yes, I can bring those types down a few pegs. Shy at first, I’m the queen of [...]

Good Morning

By |December 2nd, 2015|

I arise before the sun, Before My Person’s sleeping’s done, And sit upright upon her chest (The solar plexus works the best). Then, I choose a note that’s just off-key And repeat and repeat atonally: Meow. Meow. Meow. I stare at her and do not blink, Not a single-ingle wink. Spellbound by my unmelody, My [...]
