B: XXXXXXXXXIIII: Cat and Mouse


One poetic mouse
addressed his cat,
'My brazen slave,
prance nude in exquisite fur,
embrace your lover
in arms and legs and thighs
until he grows loud and soft
and dies.'

One cinematic mouse
adapted this scene for the screen,
used humans in the cast,
and doing without the killing,
made what was seen as obscene.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
