TIME IS A BLACK CAT.

TIME IS A BLACK CAT THIS TIME,

THE BLACK CAT IS A CLOCK,

(THERES A REASON WE WEAR WATCHES ON OUR WRISTS,

BLOOD OXYGEN LEVELS MUST BE MEASURED

BEFORE BEING RELEASED.)

WHAT BETTER WAY TO NOTICE THE SPEED OF TIME

THAN A BLACK, FURRY, FOUR FOOTED WATCH, EYES DARTING FROM SIDE TO SIDE.

ALMOST 24 HOURS, TIME SAT IN A TREE…

TOO HIGH TO JUMP,

TOO LOW TOO WORRY.

“RAIN MEANS NOTHING TO ME…

UNLESS YOU WANT TO SPEAK ABOUT PUDDLES

(PUDDLES ARE ALSO GOOD AT MEASURING TIME AND THE DISTANCE TO THE SKY)

I GRABBED TIME, THE BIG BLACK CAT, BY THE SCRUFF,

THE BAMBOO LADDER CREAKED AND BOWED,

AND I RELEASED HIM INTO THE AIR,

HE FLEW THROUGH IT LIKE A KITE,

LANDED SOFTLY, STOOD STILL AND SAID
