I’ve long been fascinated by the idea of alternative endings in poems — writing two (or more) endings and letting readers decide which ending they prefer. Is it even poetry? Who knows. But as you do know, I believe strongly in the power of the internet to make questionable poetic choices. So here, amidst chaos here in the U.S. over “alternative facts”, I present to you my first official “alternative ending” poem.

New Poem: National Cat Day

Cute Cat

It’s been a looooong time since I’ve written a regular blog or posted a poem. Trying to get back to that. When I found out that today was National Cat Day on my way to work this morning, I couldn’t help but write about it:
