Calico

A Cat Poem

Dear calico, sweet calico,
From whence you came, I do not know.

Black and brown spots, white beneath,
Even the bottoms of your feet.

No symmetry in your design,
Yet balanced as you walk the line.

With mysterious, golden stare,
Picaso’s work cannot compare.

Lovely genetic selection,
You are perfect imperfection!
