Lessons From A Young Feline (Poem)

I yell full sentences filled with illustrative threats exuding smoldering animosity. Over and over he does what I tell him not to do.

His full, rounded body tenses with desire pulsing along… Continue reading Lessons From A Young Feline (Poem)

A Family Affair

Some 18 years ago I met some people who would become “forever friends”. I know this because they told me so. Sadly, at the time of, I admit that I wasn’t a believer of the term.
