6:8 at Plato's (re)Public Park
my cat purrs like parked bulldozers
hiding behind badges
at the sparrow perching on the window sil,
feet up, a broken neck
did it not see the glass waiting for it
to rise just high enough?
use your fingers, flap its wings
passerine pantomime looking for seed
it no longer flies
it will not sing
Tell a story in 55 words. Give it a try or just read more, go see g-man.
Over at dVerse Poets, Gay has us writing in allegory and metaphor. Should be fun, so join in.
