The Smarter Cat, Postmodern Theology - Most Scatalogical - Without Apology To Christopher Smart Poem by Warren Falcon


For I will consider my Cat Jeoffry.
For he is the servant of the Living God...
For by stroking of him I have found out electricity.

- from 'Jubilate Agno' by Christopher Smart


Forget Jeoffry.


Consider the Cat Oliver

asleep upon the journal's

leather, old ink and think

enclosed, weighted as

only Cat-weight weighs in

upon all things, pink-eared.

A Poem of Itself possessed,

Cat-self, He's but a winking

Dream only Paws may seize.


He speaks:


Please the dust in corners,

I'd rather nod.

Let others consider god.

I shall consider Me,

the better of the two,

furred things being best.


I shall not raise a tail to human

deity, that brute untamed,

clumsy, no sense of balance.

Rather, the human being is

My mastery. I have trained

some few of them well which

pleases Me and greatly them

though I shall appear indifferent

as I ever am.


Clever me.


I will the sun up and down,

daily annunciation of tin cans,

humming humans whose

voices are the softer for

My Presence, O bringest

thou me now the tuna.


And their laughter I patiently

endure. They think Me silly

but Trickster is an arse on purpose.

I take their picture with Mine.

Eternally.


But not now.

I repose.


Every moment is a pose,

each still gesture appears

insignificant, a supposition.


Consider.
