Day 115: Fine Cats


Here's one of the many reasons to love cats, if you need convincing. I don't. I think cats are magnificent, mysterious, graceful, elegant animals. You could watch one all day and admire the many different angles it can assume, 'adjusting to the space of itself with a delightful grace.' 

Yes, a reminder of some kind of magic. The Egyptians were on to something alright!


in other words - Charles Bukowski 

The Egyptians loved the cat
were often entombed with it
instead of with the women
and never with the dog

but now
here
good people with
good eyes
are very few

yet fine cats
with great style
lounge about
in the alleys of
the universe

about
our argument tonight
whatever it was
about
and
no matter
how unhappy
it made us
feel

remember that
there is a
cat
somewhere
adjusting to the
space of itself
with a delightful
grace

in other words
magic persists
without us
no matter what
we may try to do
to spoil it

  3. Being a vampire is not what it seems like. It’s a life full of good, and amazing things. We are as human as you are.. It’s not what you are that counts, but how you choose to be. Do you want a life full of interesting things? Do you want to have power and influence over others? To be charming and desirable? To have wealth, health, and longevity? contact the vampires creed today via email: Richvampirekindom@gmail.com
