  1. Thank you for having a couple of my poems in your 2006 list. I was told by a friend that googled “carl palmer, poetry”.

    After reading your profile, seeing your love for kittens…

    Calico Sentinel

    the seedless dandelion tuft
    arriving on nonexistent breeze
    settles softly upon fluffy feline tail

    observed by the one male kitten
    in the family of four
    who quickly pounces upon his prey

    immediately swatted sideways
    he dives for obscure safety
    among his litter sisters

    stares out menacingly
    at the unruffled tuft
    still smugly riding mother’s tail

    weighing the consequence
    of another of mother’s slaps
    for his certain repeat attack

    Maybe you might add this one to your list, too.
