Best Poem of Laurence Overmire

The Life Of A Cat

Sleep.
Eat.
Sleep.

Play with string.

Sleep.
Eat.
Sleep.

Hunt a bug.

Sleep.
Eat.
Sleep.
Sleep.
Sleep.

Read the full of The Life Of A Cat

Ice Star

What tidings do you bring
Like Mercury from the gods
You fiery-footed herald
Of the vast unknown?
How many civilizations did rise and fall
Since your last report?
How many seas have vanished
From the cosmic shores
Burned to vapor ‘neath a million suns

[Hata Bildir]
