Catkins: An Aesthetic Discourse


White Persian cat
sitting on a leek cliff –

on its head,
perfectly perched:

the marvellously jaunty
Acorn Hat.

Behold –
that 60 degree
angle of style;

the fantastic shade
of sickly green –

such is the season
for health goths.



Or a pale green Penguin,
with head and beak
a shade of bitter coffee

where it looks on
at the neverending sea,
daubs of scarlet dancing;

pondering on where
the fish are to be found
in this global atrocity
of carbon dioxide and honey.
