I learned It From My Cats

I guess I should feel bad and not talk smack when someone I didn’t like dies.

It’s the respectful thing to do.

On the other hand my cats used to bring me half eaten, almost still alive rodents because they love and respect me.

I guess I should feel bad when someone I don’t like dies.

But I don’t.

The Question of Bones

Can I afford to not look up

to look straight ahead

with my eyes shut tight

Can I afford what that will cost me?

Don’t think

don’t speak

do not wonder

Can I afford to do that?

I’ll save a lot and have time to spare

one day.

Or I could hang the cost

run up the tab

and let my curiosity run free

a wild monster roaming the world

looking for more, feasting on too much, it doesn’t wear a watch

it doesn’t care about the bill when it comes due

Can I afford to do that?

Can I really afford to dream?
