Mother Had an Orange Cat

Steve Kowis


sliding down oblivious

onward in the name

precipitating inward

delirium reflected silent

tick tock.

seeing color drip

dirty window rain

smell of diesel

synaptic bus stop

beep beep.

childhood memories bricks

bring me something

sharp words

cut deep inside

splish splash.

mother please no

dust to dust my son

selfless sacrifice innocence

god and country bleed

drip drip.

sparkling pain reality

fragments glitter dark

black winter marble

cold pussy kitty

meow meow.


kitty kitty.
