The Constructed Life

 

Delusion can be cute,
sometimes—kittens
biting their own tails.
But usually not (no,

not us)—gods, laws,
punishment and such—
with all its machinery.
After the kitty sees

the truth, she knows
(but, no, not us), that
if you want to bite
your own tail, fine, as

long as you live
with the results.
(But, no, not us.)
Kitties soon enough

learn that life is
its own answer—
what kitties bite is
their own darn fault.

(But, no, not us.)
