on purring


By Mike O’Connell
the love of a cat
is bigger than the beast inside
purring comunicates
adoration of circumstances
bringing them to being
feline entities exercising
impulses validating
cat knowledge used to live
a cats life knowing deeply
to love the moment
purring deeply nudging
our faces equivalent
of appreciation
for sharing lives together
in time or free to fend
hunted hunting
but wild histories play a part
you can see it in their eyes
