a little advertising won’t hurt

but will it dish out the pay dirt?

because, i’m one terrifying trend

that might portend or offend

and on cracked.com you’ll find the buzz

that cat hair stuff is anything but fuzz

yes, they can humor me all the same

but just you wait

cat hair jewelry will put them to shame!

cracked.com: HAIRBALLS—not just choking hazards for cats anymore!

loved the old and now the new

an earring went AWOL

in yonder urban sprawl

it was a cherished treasure

that gave the wearer pleasure

* * *

this bauble? no ordinary thing

t’was cat hair that made it zing!

so another set was made

to replaced the one that strayed

little cat feet

little cat feet, little cat feet

softly paddle down the street

slinking like fog with wispy paws

cool and silent; no clicking claws

then puff! he’s gone, he did not pause

but left his print—a white cat paw

white paw print—captured in a choker necklace.

thy love bud

a   m e m e n t o   m o r i 

thine orb of hair I wear

tis a bud of love so fair.

but O to love is wrought with pain

as summer surely turns to rain.

death brags with his eternal kiss

but speak not of thy love I miss.

hither now please take your rest

forever thy love betwixt my breasts.

a false start

Be bold! Be sharp! Is what I caught

From kitty Gaia’s train of thought

So off I went, to make with zeal

A necklace, of fur and steel

A work of art, that would appeal

To Gaia—and end this ordeal

But no, that would have been too smart

It didn’t work. Tomorrow? Another start.
