pink boy

pink boy was an grownup feral cat when he got here into our lives. He was king of east Sacramento, or so he thought. One day we observed he had a battle wound which wanted consideration. We acquired him to the vet who patched him up. When we acquired him dwelling, we put him within the toilet with the door shut so he might start his restoration in peace away from the opposite felines in the home. We had been apprehensive about opening the door. Would tear out of there in a feral frenzy, snarling and growling, prepared to tear us to shreds? Imagine our shock and delight after we noticed him mendacity on his again within the windowsill, paws within the air, letting the summer time breeze ruffle his white tummy fur. He grew to become our huge yellow teddy bear, who beloved to lounge round on windowsills, the backs of recliners, and above all, human laps.

One day, after I was working at my pc, pink boy jumped up and walked throughout the keyboard leaving an intriguing line of textual content. Knowing directly that it was a poem, I saved the doc and spent months translating and enhancing this poem into English. I included it in a e book of my very own poetry and created a collage to go along with it. Over the years I’ve learn it quite a few instances as my introductory poem at readings and it’s a fan favourite. Here is the poem:


By Red Boy Bazooka the Husband

Trans., Laura Ann

pink cat’s toes like berry nips

bunch collectively

right into a nipple

sort throughout

pc keys


mild winds tail amongst

yellow flowers drowse

with half closed eyes underneath the solar

bee drone

tongue tip trill on

the roof of your mouth

lips open

he walks on 4 cheek drums

mud pink tongue hymns

that is hnmmmmmm

relaxation is lips on pores and skin

heat shiver

mouth in opposition to stomach laughs

intimate sigh asleep beside the beloved

physique activates silk/sound of this

sends you to deeper dream

underneath butter heat fur undulating in opposition to cheek bones


in opposition to them

till the lips utter:


spontaneous hearth/different Wake up!
