Cats cut cool colors

One fine day, 
the colors of the cool cat
caught the dying rays of irony 
sinking slowly
in the middle 
of the deep blue sea. 
One fine day, 
the deep blue sea
saw to it 
that this never happened again. 

That night
the owl sang
as the wind whistled
and the song remained
but ironic 
till the end.

One fine day
the letter arrived
requesting the presence
for extending your stay.

Golly Mean

wearing these
brand new shoes
who's to say 
that the world
hasn't been 
trodden under
these ageing feet
again?

some days
too many words
have spilled over
these lips
that have quivered
in rage
as the mind was lit.

little by little
the light of the seed
shone through 
the darkness
that could feed
the need
of the runaway 
fiddler
wandering
through the streets.

the humming
continued
as the rain 
poured
over the crude
drumming of the
subdued henchman
as he hung out
by the ghost's
right hand stooge
singing away
her sweet delta
blues.
