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

Sink Hole

He made the mistake of standing on top of the television set.
He thought maybe he could conquer it, I guess
But instead

It swallowed him up and burped him out into an

Infomercial.
And if we don’t pay $149.95 in six easy installments
We’ll probably never see him again.
