Biography of Susan Marie Watkins

Susan Marie Watkins poet

A writer since a very young age, I've worked for the last 30 years as a dresser at Disneyland, a school teacher (elementary-college) , and a counselor. I've recently relocated from crowded, smoggy Southern California to the beautiful wide-open spaces of Wyoming. I've chucked my 'real' jobs once and for all, and am now going to pursue my true love, writing, full-time and with all the gusto I have.

Gauguin's Cat

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
