Couple of Poems

You’re being asked
to leave the flames of Hell;
you have done well
and been well done.
Why have you put yourself here?

Can’t you accept yourself
without proving yourself
fireproof?

Can’t you forgive yourself
as you’d forgive others
if you dared?

Your Daddy’s calling; it’s
time to come home
and play.

A Cat Meditation

It’s spooky. He’s

sitting in the living room,
all tangled up, staring
at a perfectly empty spot
on the floor. I wonder how

do they get into those
positions, how
can he spring if anything
comes out? I wipe

my nose on his hand and he tells me
he’s hunting the Great Mouse.

[me (<= 1999)]
