I live the life  of a cat on an island of dogs

where cat food isn't to be found

for sale in petshops

& all a poor hounded cat can do

is sit on the mat

& pathetically meow

the only thing that matters


the existential now



Wrote above piece half a century ago, when still a teen & more naive, a mere kitten. Now, though haven't fully realised the "great perfection" of this very moment, I do also PURR sometimes.

Our furry feline friend might benefit from the Buddhist nondual teaching of Dzogchen (or Dog zen as the dyslexic & those fond of a pun prefer to call it!)
