The Cat Poetry Series: Part 1, A Life or Death Problem

6 inklings - saturday

I think I mentioned it before last week that I’ll be starting a new series of poetry this month for Halloween. So let me introduce to you “The Cat Poetry Series”. What I have done is I’ve taken a very old library book from when I was a child. I think I bought the book for a few dollars from my school library when they were selling out old books. I’ve taken the first page of each chapter and crossed out words so that the words that are left make a poem. Alongside each poem, I’ll share with you the page that I’ve taken and the actual crossing out that I’ve done.

Below is the first installment, or first chapter (what have you), of the series:

A Life or Death Problem

he’ll hang around.
he’ll never leave.
That’s what has happened.
Bleeker
a tall man
a thin face
the tone of his voice you would
think he was back home
sitting up in the
black judge’s chair
looking down
on the grass in front of the porch
he was dressed
a loose shirt, and
a towel over his shoulder
