november poem-a-day, day 27

November 27, 2010

Alrighty, then. This one is weird. I started with the prompt for today (write a poem with the title “blame the _____”). I filled in the blank with “cat,” attributed to it a peeing accident (which I really discovered today) and then out of the blue the line, “and I can’t stay here anymore.” It started to go from there as I thought it might go, with an odd list of fictional reasons explaining the narrator’s statement. I have no idea where the horror flick imagery came from. Or why.

    That was fun! I like the hour hand that can no longer bring itself to face noon. The cat and the psychopath are blurring together in my mind — not sure if that was your intent. But cats are dangerous, psycohpathic little brutes, for sure. At least if you’re a mouse.
