New

source


New year
a book on its first reading
its cover is stiff
and so is its spine

as it stretches and rolls
out of bed on the first day
a cat who stayed up
too late last night

yowling with the howling dogs
at the gibbous moon
and jumping down from the roof (plop)
and landing on all four legs.

its spine will never break
but it will bend (stretching)

    1. Why, thank you! I wrote the poem, but did not take the picture (it's from wikicommons). I'm glad you enjoyed my post!
