Choose Not the Firecat, after Stevens’ Earthy Anecdote, a poem by Stephen Fuller

I choose not the firecat, instead
A bobcat, though still it bristles
In the way of clattering bucks.
If being the bobcat, I must
Stand with hair up on my neck
Tired of jumping to the right
Tired of jumping to the left
Tired of the general clatter
So much I just want to close
My eyes and sleep, I choose not.

    Wishing we were something else, someone else, or somewhere else is a good challenge for the soul. Be grateful you are you. Nice piece, Stephen, and good to see a poem from you.
