A Poem by anais.vionet
"

it's hard to find an audience in a pandemic

"
My cat’s become so critical
of the pieces that I write
he kneads to express his opinion
and he always thinks he’s right.

He twitches his ear-itation
if I don't write in Senryus.
If what I write displeases him
he’s under the bed for refuge.

He’s worse than many teachers -
his reviews are seldom neutered -
he pointedly wags that twitchy tail
or cat-calls disapproval.

He laid across my laptop
for half the afternoon
‘til I promised an ode to tuna
which earned purrs of hallelujah!

I loved the poem dear Anais. I lost my cat of 11 years in November. She would watch me write on my laps and was my biggest fan. Our animals. Our best friends. Needing little and giving love to us. Thank you for sharing the amazing poetry and your thoughts.

My grandchildren loved the cat. They were raised-up together. Losing her, like losing a best friend.

Lol, this is too cute. I featured my cat in one of my writes too... though it's not well written like this one. Mine was only ever supposed to be a joke. I love this.
