Observing Sweden – Cat’s Eye View


Marilyn asked me

To share my view

But there’s not much to look at

I’m telling you true


From a window in Sweden

I’m watching the dawn

I used to live in Seattle

But now I’m gone


Theres a whole lot of white

And a little bit red

I’ll probably spend the whole day

Under the bed


And don’t be surprised

If you hear me snoring

It’s because this empty house

Is so damn boring.


Buckminster of Marlboro (I use my formal name this for literary work)

Another masterpiece. I wonder if I could get this published. Maybe Hip Cat magazine.

    Dear Bucks,
    Thanks so much for the poem and the chance to gaze from your window with you. Somehow, I had imagined you’d be in a more rural area. It’s nice to have a visual of the neighborhood and to able to see your outside world, half way round the planet from my outside world.

    My, the third week in March, and still snow on the ground. It’s good that you have a warm coat with you. It would behoove you to stay inside in this new place. Who knows what could happen to you in the snow?

    Don’t worry, the house will eventually have stuff inside and then you’ll have your favorite places to nap and hide.

    Your reader in the Seattle area,

  5. Dear Bucks,
    You are just a wonderful writer. You should write poetry more often. Perhaps poetry will become the release you need for boredom.
