Belated Birthday Haiku


Old cat warm against
a sunshine wall — Kerouac
licks his aching paw.

(first publication)

Ah, Kerouac—
you can't take the Beats out of
an ol' cat

We all need someone to lick our paws from time to time.

Thanks, Ken. Coincidentally, I just found the paws button on my keyboard.
