This Cat is a Landmine

He likes to spy on the guests

from behind the kitchen door,

waiting until they are sitting on his couch

to vengefully scratch their hands.

His tail swings from side to side

as he carries his stuffed mouse toy

into his grey, wooden cat house.

He pounces on little girls

as they walk to school

and bites little boys’ ankles 

if they dare to whistle aloud.

I found ripped sketchbooks once

though I had not seen him for days.

He dislikes even other cats

or perhaps they avoid him,

I’m sure they too have the knowledge

that this cat is a deadly mine.

everyone here can read and write,
the dogs in poetry, the cats and all the others in prose.

Making Love to Language

There she stands awaiting me

at the edge of an old but crisp hotel bed,

beautiful and unafraid,

her long locks of rhymes running down her back.

She is as proper as grammar, so

 she prefers not to be hasty to undress.

Though after she begins to unbutton her metaphors

letting them drop on the floor,

and unzips her symbolism,

which glides down caressing her similes

until it reaches her feet,

I fear I won’t be able to control myself.

I witness her bare syntax,

as she gently pushes my chest onto the bed.

The only thing keeping us apart

the punctuation she uses to adorn herself.

What hides she under those apostrophes?

If I could but kiss her parenthesis,

feel her whole meaning next to mine,

in her I would be lost.
