a hairy toy

one week of brushing yields piles of fluff

what to do? craft s’more that cat hair stuff!

nimble hands now roll now shape then form

that mound of hair? it’s now transformed!

now see, for words cannot express

wild cat exuberance! yes, Yes!  Y E S !

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!

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.

Metro Cat

For weeks and weeks I fussed then cursed

My mind was trapped and at its worst

No creative thoughts were to be found

My mental state had run aground!

> * * <

I begged my kitty—help me please

I badly need your expertise!

With Thinking Turban on his nod

Designs soon flew—and none too soon!

> * * <

And now, let’s see him strut his stuff

With Metro Cat he sure looks tough!

City kitties metro statement in fur and steel.  One “tough” looking cat he is.

necklace.A

Choker necklace. Steel, cat hair and stainless steel jump rings.

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.
