Lisa Jarnot - Additional Ode

For the specialness of daylight
and the color of the sky
for the evidence of mammal forms
and all ferrets and the night,
for the fireflies distracted
made of crayons and the rain,
for the days of working workingness
and a facileness of themes,
for the finlandtude of spirits
that are fierce beside the cats,
for the rampant forms that are the cats,
made of warm flesh lined with fur,
for the solace that is warm fur flesh
that is everything alright
for the eventide of everything,
for the this and then and them.

[from MiPO]
