Also the name of my cat

April 19, 2012


Socrates

In a small Greek neighbourhood. Eons ago. Socrates slept. Also the name of my cat. The radio comes on by itself. The darkness stings. No more piss-ons. Uncurl my toes. Hand reaches for the lamp. The cat looks startled. Socrates. Dead as a door nail. I think he  swallowed the blue pills. I keep at my bedside.
