Grumpy Nietzschean Cat speaks



Last night …

Last night I had one
of those dreams where
the main action has
already happened,
and you wander around
trying to work out
what has occurred,
and where everything
like a bumbling
store detective …
… or like walking
into a home where an
argument still hangs
in the air, like a forgotten
helium balloon
from a fractious
party …
… trying desperately
to reconstruct
the past,
confabulating madly
like a man
who has ruined
his memory
with alcohol …
… but very like simply
being a human being,
wondering what all those
people in the past
could have been thinking
to leave behind
this curious mess.

her heart fluttered and
she clasped her breasts
as if they were gentle birds
about to leave their nests

Five rabbit haiku

warm night
the wild rabbits
are close

the colour
of the soil
wild rabbits

startled rabbits
brown white
brown white

in the tangle
of the landscape

the rabbits fade
into the ground
