The Playful Language Poem by fraidoon warasta

The Playful Language



with a smile, she said:
‘ certainly, we come out of the earth and
not from this or that country.'
we all should get a new passport,
a nonmaterial one
invisible
untouchable
a world citizenship passport
then we'll love our dwelling place more than ever
and wouldn't need to travel far
then we'll find our universal language
by following the cats

yes, cats linguistically all over the world
have one language
their own playful language
do we know miaowism?
maybe it's not surprising that cats from japan
understand african cats
and persian cats have the same body and tail language
as those from americas
so far so good!

how can we surpass the boundaries then?
learning the language of our heart
is maybe our existential challenge
see a cat-like leap
from the earth to galaxy and return
as our destiny
