Felines know how to inhabit space

intuitively and elegantly.  Cats are landscapes which purr.
Makes me ask, is a poem also a purring landscape?
Speaking of food, salmon, snap peas, rice make me purr.  What makes you purr?

P.S.  The elegant feline above is Sweetie.  Known for her delicate paws, pink heart-shaped necklace and the most beguiling yawn-greeting.  Like her half-brother haiku (now in the cosmos), Sweetie has no interest in poetry. But a blanket is different, deserving attention & touch.

    in the process of sorting through books and papers, s. relives the circumstances of each poem, and thus the words are reconstructed, relived, reborn
