Gauguin's Cat - Poem by Susan Marie Watkins

gauguin's cat lived in neglect
amid the teeming emerald jungles of tahiti
she'd sleep alone on a broken chair in the corner
then jump down and stagger to the door
where she'd sit bleary-eyed
dreaming of hummingbirds & butterflies
as the waves slapped the beach
outside gaugin's little grass shack

    I love the off-hand way you just turned trivia into music! I wonder if Paul ever painted his cat? Rgds, Ivan (Report)Reply
