What is it? The mysterious nature of cats perhaps? Reply Meg 2013/04/03 at 00:14 (7 years ago) 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. Reply Marcus 2013/04/04 at 17:52 (7 years ago) Wow, this in very interesting. But no cats? No stories about cats? Reply Bernadette 2013/04/04 at 18:01 (7 years ago) 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.” Reply Marcus 2013/04/04 at 18:20 (7 years ago) 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 :) Reply Gail White 2015/08/29 at 01:50 (4 years ago) For more poems about cats, see Gail White’s book “Asperity Street” at Amazon or Able Muse Press – especially them poem “She Compares Her Lover to Her Cat,” Reply docowen 2016/06/12 at 17:58 (3 years ago) Interesting photos Reply BestRafael 2019/07/19 at 20:45 (4 months ago) I see you don’t monetize culturalcat.com, don’t waste your traffic, you can earn extra cash every month with new monetization method.
