      Yes in deed. What is it? The mysterious nature of cats perhaps?

    I had a published poet friend in Haddam, Connecticut, a contemporary of Ginsberg’s, who hung out with those crazy guys back in the sixties. They would visit each other’s homes cross-country for decades. Stories galore. No cats.

    Marcus, I think it’s that very solitary nature, of sharing a space but being apart.

    I hate to be trite, but from my perspective as an artist, they are also “poetry in motion.”

      You are right. I have struggled with social phobia all my life, when cats moved in with me I felt a connection, like we were the same.

      You are right about the poetry in motion. And thanks for the new word – “trite”. I had to look it up :)
