What the Cat Would Tell Us
by Phil Miller
The cat would tell us if he could
the art of dying is to live,
the art of living, choosing the right food.
We learn to balance, take and give
stare at each other, hold our fires
the art of dying is to live.
The cat watches us, soon tires,
falls asleep or watches something move
we stare at each other, hold our fires.
The cat chooses our world to love,
wonders why we don’t do the same,
he falls asleep or watches something move.
We measure our innocence and blame.
You stare at me. I stare at you.
The cat wonders why we don’t do the same
as he does. He’s busy making do.
The art of living, he chooses the right food.
You stare at me, I stare at you.
The cat would tell us if he could.
