    A cat's trust

    is cautious and conditional

    hard won

    freely given

    and volitional.

    This did not make the cut:

    I sat down to write a poem about a bout of cat allergy early in my life

    and how I overcame it by ignoring the standard recommendations of medical science—

    medication and avoidance—

    and by instead starting to cat-sit my neighbor's cat.

    But this quickly became a poem about cat allergy in se, as they say,

    and then a poem about the spiritual nature of the world,

    but seeing as such a theme is above the eyes, nose, throat, and skin of most folk suffering from the sublime wretchedness,

    in the end I was forced to make this poem about a book on that theme,

    a distancing that allows those who suffer from the allergy the only reading experience they are capable of in their condition,

    and that is the humorous reading—

    it must be the antihistamines, I want to tell them, but they won't see the humor in this, and that's the point.


    This from the frontispiece of the book:

    I suffered, sure I suffered,

    I'm here to tell you that

    but over time I suffered less

    and then I got a cat!



    This from the title page:

    Cats: From Allergen to Allegory

    a spiritual journey



    Awarded the Nobel Prize in metaphysics, the author began his acceptance speech in this way:


    "I grew up with dogs.

    The dog is man's best friend.

    No question about this in the end.

    I grew up with dogs, but that's another story.

    Today I'm here to sing another glory.

    our spirit animal

    our brother

    (smiling pause)

    and sister

    the cat"




    He delivered the speech holding a European Shorthair.

    What a moment for the World Spirit!

    I wish you all could have been there!
