Poem of the Week

Seurat in Spring

{ – libretto singing cat

! --M'appari tut'amor –}

Von Flotow doesn't hear any meows

the light, airy romp through the spring garden
French daintiness
avec biftek et pomme de terre des frites
Post-Impressionism of Seurat hanging above a wall
encased by a heavily gilded frame

a bowl of fruit on the table in front of a majestic
velvet covered chair

her royal Persian furry highness approves
the emerald tiara placed upon her head
which matches her gem encrusted collar.
