triumphs and trophies
artfully spaced on his plate–
Smudge the Conqueror!

poetry in motion
he positions each precious treasure
precisely as he alone imagines it
before bowing his head low
to savor his hard-won
feathered pea protein, duck, chicken and assorted fish flavors
compliments of Her Royal Highness
This morning I rediscovered this fun poem. It captures at least some of the frustration and glory of having a meticulous cat. Here’s hoping your day includes a wonderful surprise or two!
