Get this straight:
Not one step closer.
This is mine!

An island
Isolated by
A fog flood.

She gave him a come-hither smile,
A match to helpless hay.
But she was thinking all the while,
“Oh, please just stay away!” 

For e’en a cat can sometimes tire
Of playing with its prey,
But can’t its nature just retire
A moment or a day.

The San Francisco hills are, day by day,
A mystery that never goes away.
Some need a revelation so they’ll know
Why they put on the purest iv’ry show.

They daily seem to smoke as if on fire,
And wear their white robes like a virgin choir.
But on their slopes there is no leaping flame
That Smoking Mountains would become their name.

Though Twain deemed San Francisco summer’s cold
No one who knows would be so wrong and bold
To say the hills, upon their heads, wear snow
So they are white and wise like old men grow.

It really is too complex to explain
The factors here in my too short refrain.
So, in the end, my simple answer’s that
On San Francisco hills sits Sandburg’s cat.

Mark Twain supposedly said, “The coldest winter I ever spent was a summer in San Francisco.”

Outta Here!

Life sentence –
When you kill one mouse.
It’s not fair!

Another Evil

Three monkeys
Don’t see, hear, speak – but
Something smells.

Who, Me? Or You?

Are you real?

Something Fishy’s Going On

Evil glare:
I have work to do –
Go away!

First contest:
Synchronized dancing
With drumsticks.

Four horses –
Go forth to conquer
The whole world.

…….Fog

The fog comes
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
