Penalty



I have heard cats bark
in corners of my mind
that I polish
with a texture of magenta
say cheese
and I smile
do not blink, I am told
'cause my left eye is a camera
painting fake colours
that dissolve and create
chaotic sensibility
the right eye knows the wrong
and keeps mute
'cause silence is valuable
in heaven trampled with hell
letting go of my stance
I absorb, and breath, and breath in again
until I saturate

in cosmos laden with dirt
I miss the laundry
the filth hunts me down
yes, that's my penalty

  3. ... absorb ... saturate ... then wash out ... and wear the garment with pride, cause you know, you did it ... that's the secret to be able to keep breathing ... smiles ... Love, cat.
