after dinner when the world has calmed down

i can’t remember
the last time
i highlighted
faded prosperity
i sit here
after dinner
on the edge of sunset
wine drunk
in a quiet heaven
and, amused i
lie on the floor
to watch my cats

green almond eyes
golden naps
calico curiosity
and majestic indifference
these four beasts
are better
than any television show

and so
the arrow draws slowly back
only to be
rapidly forward
and memories mean little
in this land of
harmonic simulation
