Cat Show Excerpt Sophia gazed nonchalantly out the frosty window onto a desolate landscape of snow and concrete. It was a weekend in mid-December, and she had just waved goodbye to her husband, Dimitry, who had a few work errands. She was alone now, in their modestly furnished house, unequipped to battle with the loneliness that overwhelmed her around that time of year. Sophia would not permit such emotions, defiant to their hunger of her joy.
Though the weather was wintry, she could still catch a glimpse of the sun, and though she was alone, it meant she would have the silence to think and the privacy that permitted her to do anything she wanted.
This alleviated her sadness, and she stood from the sagging armchair, making her way briskly into a bathroom crowded from top to bottom with beauty and sanitation items.

Spilled drinkIt's a world of multidimensional
statues which exalt
themselves with wise phrases.
Cold, gray, carved with ice metal,
the heavy hot sun presses down
while the roots push up and around.
Water plummets down from the sky,
from the sea, from the ocean.
Shrunken stone remains.
The carvings of an indecipherable memory.
A corroded futility.
Those who had carefully carved
or caressed it with soft fingers,
now are sure to scrape at their coffin
like the countless others
who find out when it's too late.

that, working together, create the sea,
mate with the countless grains
of sand, seducing
them into the dark
and mysterious depths.
The virgin grains wait
their turn to return
to where their ancestors
had been broken
only to be tossed up,
washed out, rejected,
exposed to the piercing hot sunlight
and the bland blue sky.
Powerless to resist,
they are left as pawns
by the all-reaching wind,
the powerful waves,
the reckless stamping feet.
Forces that tease
their inanimate bodies
leaving them more still,
Keep in Touch!
