The feral cat
Fresh blood dripping from your snarling mouth
your shoulders bunched, spine high-arched
you glared angrily at me as I drove past in my car.
Icon of primeval hunter, you crouched by the roadside
teeth burgeoning in crushing, crunching jaws
tearing flesh from a fresh-killed victim with razor claws.
Boldness imaged your new freedom
in an expanding heart that lusted
solely to hunt … stalk … kill prey.
You are growing wiser
stronger … faster … wilder.
“Before that I had one day’s work in The Bowery Boys Go To Africa. I played Tarzan. The Bowery Boys were about to take Jane back to civilization, and I discouraged them from doing that.”
― Anne Sexton
“Resentment is like taking poison and waiting for the other person to die.”

“There is a rumour going around that I have found God. I think this is unlikely because I have enough difficulty finding my keys, and there is empirical evidence that they exist.”
― Terry Pratchett
― Jean-Paul Sartre
“I had never liked, even feared a little, this wild reach of marsh and mud flats where everything seemed turned away from the land, looking off desperately toward the horizon as if in mute search for a sign of rescue.”
― John Banville, The Sea
If we go on the way we have, the fault is our greed and if we are not willing to change, we will disappear from the face of the globe, to be replaced by the insect.
