Feline Sonnet

Feline Sonnet

A Poem by Duncan Brown


 

That abstract form in patterned space

Such a glossy shape of fatal ambience

Seamless as a renaissance masterpiece

A perfect camouflage of purring violence

 

Such is the guise of its killing insouciance

Everything within its finite seeing grace

Is infinitely absorbed by its arrogance

Fashioned fatal in vestments of innocence

 

This nine-lifed four-limbed feline deity

With the double brace of hearing vision

Multiplying itself in languorous proximity

Fading into landscape of distant singularity

The symmetry of the poet’s infatuation

A creature writ in another hands heaven.

I'm extremely sorry to hear about Duncan's situation. Pass on my regards. We have had some interesting literary exchanges over the last year or two! This p***y piece distils all Duncan's skills.

Thanks for your review, Damien. I'm writing this for Duncan, who no longer writes due to a major stroke. He has perfect understanding though!
