Bingo Kitty

The Poet's Cat

by BKPoet

Night by night
candle by candle
I sit
less sleep than I can handle.

Letter by letter,
word by word,
my dedication
some think absurd.

Sentence by sentence
verse by verse
I ponder
can it get any worse?

Rewrite by rewrite,
poem by poem,
I stay
yet want so much to roam.

Acceptance by acceptance
Rejection by rejection
I purr
away the poets dejection.

Snuggle by snuggle,
reward by reward
being the poet's cat
I'm completely adored.


At the time this poem was written, BingoKitty (aka BKPoet) was eleven years old.
