Cat Person

This entry is part 8 of 19 in the series Une Semaine de Bonté


Page 8 from Max Ernst’s Une Semaine de Bonté

Let me down one cat a time:

  • the cat that wakes me by sitting on my face
  • the cat that ignores me
  • the cat that pushes vases off of tables
  • the cat that was once magic but now just lies around and gets fat
  • the cat that kills birds out of irritation at their wings
  • and the cat that disappears in the middle of a sentence
    like a body flung from a bridge while the soul
    carries on, oblivious,
    yowling about the goddamn hunter’s moon.
