Two Cats To Go

If a cat has 9 lives

And I had 7 cats,

It may be said that I had 63 lives inside my own

With which to do whatever what.

 

None to impose, but a few to waste perhaps,

The hours of dolce-far-niente, of contemplation,

But also of frustration,

In which pain real and imagined, wouldn’t, couldn’t stop.

 

But here I am, 2 cats to go, and still discovering, hoping.

For more cats and for far fewer of us,

The doors of paradise

Slightly more open.
