Grey Cat

Grey Cat 1.jpeg

The grey cat walks
down the brick path
outside the windows.
Once during breakfast,
again now.  Grey
on grey stripes.

The car drives up.
Copies to make.  The
cat disappears into
the hibiscus.

The Epigenetic Slate


“…and what if we could create a pill potent enough to wipe clean the epigenetic slate of all that history wrote?” Dan Hurley

Born a generation out of slavery,
looking down the years of her
descendants, memories
passed through generations.
Did she see the violence
to be unleashed on her
children’s grandchildren,
the future writing and rewriting any
history lost or forgotten on our epigenetic slate.
