    Maybe cats that are in heaven are able to read?
    Les Miserables,
    Volume 1, Fifth Book, Chapter 3
    Remember this, my friends: there are no such things as bad plants or bad men. There are only bad cultivators.

    Mary, so kind. mwah.

    Bien, my cats read even when they were in this world, they pore over things I'm reading at the moment, books, junk mail, maps (especially maps). And they can speed read. They get done with their reading awfully quick, then without moving off their reading material they start taking a nap. I don't like to think that they went to heaven, sounds so far. They're just in a different dimension. I still hear/see them occasionally. Nik knows

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    You catch them in the corner of your eye, at the very edge of your vision.
    Your eye knows that they should be there, and it sees them, long after
    they are gone. I feel your loss Haunted, I am sorry...peace...

    This is previously posted as a contest entry, otherwise known as recycled trash.




    existence


    i am a globe
    of zapping blue lights
    in the expanse of space
    looking foward to when
    the electromagnetic shell
    bursts and blasts every
    living atom in this orb
    into magnificent
    oblivion

    I tried--Lord knows how
    I tried--to square the
    circle, using the same
    amount of space as in
    your clever “orb,” but,
    look: I came close, but
    couldn’t do it. So, now
    shamefully, I concede.

    Thanks for the nudge in the ribs Haunted - I hadn't noticed judging was over!

    Yours still stands out as a work of beauty.

    A beautiful bauble (nods at Hill) that you should write anew at christmas and I will cut it out and hang on the tree.
    Now wheres that bath poem .....

    For those who believe,
    no explanation is necessary.
    For those who do not,
    none will suffice.
