watching my blind cat in The Cortland Review

TCR Feb 2012 cover design: Perkus Tooth by Tom Sanford










We lost both of our very ancient Siamese cats during the last year. I wrote this one about Narla who went blind before we made the difficult decision to have her euthanased. The poem’s been picked up by The Cortland Review (US.) This is an excellent, beautifully-designed e-journal which includes an audio button so that you can hear the poets read in their own voices as you see the text on the page. My poem is HERE.

Sorry – yet another poem about death and decrepitude! Perhaps it’s time I lightened up…

Thanks to TCR for publishing my work.
