The Acid Acts Up
On Easter Day

I have come in from
the fields to find the cat's been
named trusty in charge
and just look at it!
Nowhere to sleep for me now.
I don't trust this house
and even the land
has changed now that I'm inside.
I guess I can't get
back up the old path
either. It could be flashbacks
or too many fumes.

  1. wow! I was really looking forward to seeing how everyone else sawthis image- and voila! I am not disappointed! Love the last line
    "It could be flashbacks
    or too many fumes."

  2. Abstruse, cryptic, challenging...

  3. Sleeping on the counter like it owns the place...

    1. Like this. You are certainly right. "Trusty In Charge" is the true name of this cat!

  5. This made me smile Christopher- thank you
