A Hair Care Prose I Suppose

Caring for ones appearance,
requires an adherence,
to a good tongue licking.
To Keep hair from sticking,
and in it’s place,
start with the face.
Apply a little spit,
onto your mitt,
and buff in a circular motion.
This liquid lotion,
polished to a glossy shine,
is a sign,
of a healthy feline.
It will feel wet,
so don’t get upset,
and continue to thoroughly clean.
It’s called personal hygiene.

Groom front to back,
allowing no slack,
and employ long full strokes.
Daily washing evokes,
an oily secretion,
and it’s stimulation,
maintains healthy skin.
This habit must begin,
at an early age,
and will engage,
much of your time.
To stay so sublime,
a trim of the claws,
on all four paws,
a routine ritual must include.
If in the mood,
it is understood,
an interconnection,
of affection,
such as this,
is much like a kiss.
It’s called Kitty-Bliss.


My skin is a little hairy, so that’s what it means to meow. We’re not happy with our iPhoto. Since putting the life-proof case on, it’s got this strange reflection showing up so we will be hunting for another photo…there always another photo…but to post this prose today, we we’ll use it anyway…..

Poetry 101 Day 3: Choose whatever meaning of “skin” speaks to you the most. The suggested form might sound like an oxymoron: the prose poem. Unlike some of the other forms a prose poem, by definition, has no fixed rules. Whether a reader sees the prose or the poetry in it hinges on a variety of factors beyond your control. In your poem, try creating some internal rhymes — a device that’s particularly well-suited for prose poetry.
