on a wonderful thing.

To my God, regarding my cat, Atramentaceous.

As you do for all things, whatever
You hold every fiber of her being together, as if
She, in particular, is worthy of your attention.
She’s a cat, for Christ’s sake.
You invented Catness. You made Catness be what it is.
For in you all things live and move and have their being.

How is it that a manifestation of you is nothing other than
The quirkiness of a cat?
How is that you, in your unfathomable profundity
Made a tiny little being that purrs?

I think it was his first attempt at making a dog, but he messed it up. Dogs are true perfection and cats are just the mistake that can't be erased. -Oscar Martinez
