from Love Poems and Myopia



Jon Woodward
what a myopia needs is
to be subverted I've heard
people say love's subversive but
then I've heard people say
it's myopic there's this little

black cat Oni and I
meet sometimes when we go
out for a walk or
whatever he says meow at
us and runs over and

flops on his side we
pet him he rolls onto
his other side we pet
him some more he stands
up repeats the whole production
