The Rules of Satisfaction

The Rules of Satisfaction

To the canary-satiated felines who soon lack
their canary I wish I could console you
A snake slurps down a caterpillar and thinks
You call that a meal

Satisfaction has a half-life
For Pete’s sake life has a half-life
Accept this into your heart for Pete
whoever he is

From inside the belly
a creature made from what it misses

  1. This poem could be wonderfully illustrated. Love "A snake slurps...."
