BLACK CAT

Bandit pillow

In honor of Halloween and my wonderful black cat Bandit, who passed away two years ago:

I am a black cat

and I know you fear me

I am a black cat

You think I’m bad luck

I am a black cat

Go ahead

blame your whole crappy life

on me.

I prowl down moon-raped avenues

I prowl alongside broom-ridden witches

I prowl under ladders, over sidewalk cracks, on

Friday the thirteenths

And I piss

on four leaf clovers.

That’s what you think

isn’t it?

You humans think I’m the devil

You humans think you know everything

You humans are black cat

black everything

racists.

You humans

can kiss my black cat ass.

I am a black cat

Hear me meow

I am a black cat

Lock up your daughters

and chihuahuas

I am a black cat

I’m coming for you

I am a black cat

will you please adopt me?

I am a black cat

And I know this:

Love always brings

good luck.

Bandit

    • Yes, definitely all cats are amazing. One thing I was trying to get at a little is that statistically black cats are harder to adopt out for some of the superstitious reasons I wrote about, which is just so stupid and tragic to me. Thanks so much for reading 🙂

  1. Just happened to run into your blog. You have got a beautiful space running here. Loved some of your write-ups. Its very subtle. I guess I will be hanging around here a lot. 🙂 Great work
