EXTORTION



the goddam cat
pissed on my pillow
'cause I wouldn't give him
an extra tablespoon of
his favorite canned food

I was trying to draw the line
because I was typing in a poem
and he walked across the keyboard
three times
and then SAT on it
like he always does

he knows I can't get anything done
till I get up and feed 
his obsession

don't know what happened
to that other poem
after I lost my train of thought
so instead you've got this one

thank the little pisser for that

cunningest cat I ever seen...
and one of the fattest

I gotta do some laundry

  6. This poem shows how the slightest thing can really distract to the point of whatever you were going to write about is completely lost. If I have a thought or poem or story in my head, I need to write it right then. :)

  10. Cats, Enjoy them but can not be around them. Too many allergies. They are into a world of their own, independent. Jack
