The Cat-Cleaning Day Arrives

When it becomes Cat cleaning day

P1100725

 

When my day turns carnivorous,

Which for a vegetarian like me, it

Means, alas that the day is planning

To gobble me up, crunching me and

clawing, then Trumping down Tweets!

P1100661

for all the messes, mistakes, mangles &

Maddening memory losses, that have

Sickened my life into stupidity and sloth!

Then I know it has to turn into the Cat-

Cleaning day! Which never fails to

Frighten me out of my fallen –into- the

reddened mouth of the tiger, feeling!

First I pounce on the vomit that Chunri

The gorgeous Tortoise Shell has deposited

On my fat red cover book of Rumi’s poetry!

I scold her furiously and she looks ashamed

And I feel better. Then I go into the garden

P1100674

And pick up some of the cat shit from where

It had no business to be, and put it in the trash

Then I remove the cat hairs from all the sofas

And all the pillows and all the books and all

The places where it should not have collected

And put it in the compost heap which is cool

And as I clean, the cats watch as watching is

Their prime time treat as if they are enjoying

Their own personal Netflix! With their own

Favourite show like Fargo is mine, along with

Narcos and House of Cards and CSI New York

Then I shudder to find my rare yellow Ivy in

The water garden where only the water lilies

P1100696

Should be, but one of my Cat Gardeners has felt

It needs to be inside water, then I rescue the

Red and white polka dot from the paws of this

Same gardener who does more of ruminating

Than restoring, repotting, repairing or watering!

P1100672

By the time I have done with Cat-Gardening, and

Cat Cleaning, the carnivorous crooked Calamity

Has slunk away under the glare of several golden

Orange Cat Stares and left me to fall into peace!
