The feline condition

I’ve got a collar around my neck and I’m supposed to like it if someone pets me.

Silence

Things are as they are and do not need poetic embroidery.

– Niebla

(Haven’t been writing much poetry in some time, and this may supply some explanation. Quite apart from the fact that I’m opposed to poetic embroidery in principle.)

Fate can be turned around

Romeo arrived on time
So did Giulia
Lives were saved &
They lived happily
Ever after &
The relatives were told
To go to hell

Author’s note
I’ve always preferred comedy to tragedy, including Shakespeare.  So why not turn one into the other?

My precarious existence

I’m relying entirely on the fact that my computer remembers all my various passwords.

Rebuttal

“So you believe in reincarnation? – What if you’re wrong?”

“It won’t matter. I’ll only find out when I’m dead.”

The tip of the anthill

(thinking of Srebrenica and two late 20th century monsters – Karadžić and Mladić)

The
worst
are always
at the tip
but the tip is

nothing
without the masses below
the faithful and fanatic executioners
reaching down into the ugly subterranean subconscious

nothing
without the international bystanders
