“A thing there is whose voice is one;
Whose feet are four and two.” …
Apollodorus

 

all purr and silk
she sits contemplating
some untested
paradigm

maybe she is ruminating
on the riddle of the Sphinx
or her questionably royal
heritage

on the other hand
could be dinner
and the waiting gourmet platter
that occupies her mind

claws sheathed
in velvet paws, she sits
oblivious to the riddles
that she poses
