I wrote a response to a blog by Cecelia
whose platform for blogging reviled me
I gushed on the page, but I couldn’t gauge
what I’d done to deserve such treatment
Your comment form ate my response.
Flighty, I wrote a poem that joked about it.
I wanted to make contact
I felt a connection to your writing
I was transported to your memory
of where you’re from.
My cats would have loved your cat.
My cats have been black with a spot of white at the neck
both deceased, one companion from college (pre-marriage)
and one recently in the war (during and after the divorce.)
I like your writing. I’m sending a ping as a response. Now, I’ll need to go find some chocolate for breakfast.
