thoughts from a cave

a hungry thought escaped
 from a deep bear cave
it sqints in the sunlight 
shakes out the stiff
dries out the pang on a fat rock
then takes to the trees
swinging like a gibbon on crack
(or the village drunk praying from the rack
gasping for bits of anything)
 it looks up- takes to the air
way beyond the stratosphere
playing with stars and meteors
( dirty boy playing with cateyes and jacks )

this cave thought loves then kills
all in the same breath
forgets where it came from
doesn't care where it is
has no purpose other than just being..
like wind from a cave

    I bet those thoughts aren't really strong enough to kill, look at me, I am still here. hugs, Catie :)

    but if you insist that they are, i guess you could call that 'sweet and sour to the taste.' :)
