Sheeba's Old View from the Window

What happened? What's happening. Sheeba's view from the window. Mine, on occasion, from wherever. Yours, from ... where.......?

Samiya Bashir’s books of poetry, Field Theories (Spring 2017), Gospel, andWhere the Apple Falls, and anthologies, including Role Call: A Generational Anthology of Social & Political Black Literature & Art, exist. Sometimes she makes poems of dirt. Sometimes zeros and ones. Sometimes variously rendered text. Sometimes light. She lives in Portland, Ore, with a magic cat who shares her obsessions with trees and blackbirds and occasionally crashes her classes and poetry salons at Reed College.

Like Americans Without an Idol

Like a night sky, starless (cityscape)
Like A. Sharpton without a perm (viable)
Like a cat in window, blogless (bored stiff)
Like a man without his sperm (el presidente!)

Like a No. 2 pencil, dulled (keep it on point)
Like a messasge-free Dem at dawn (Bring it on!)
Like a gun without a bullet (Bush)
Like a Bush without a lawn (11:2004)

Hey Sheeba! Thought you would enjoy these quotes!

There is no snooze button on a cat who wants breakfast.
Thousands of years ago, cats were worshipped as gods. Cats have never forgotten this.
Cats are smarter than dogs. You can't get eight cats to pull a sled through snow.
- Jeff Valdez
In a cat's eye, all things belong to cats.
- English proverb
As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.
- Ellen Perry Berkeley
One cat just leads to another.
- Ernest Hemingway
Dogs come when they're called; cats take a message and get back to you later.
- Mary Bly
Cats are rather delicate creatures and they are subject to a good many ailments, but I never heard of one who suffered from insomnia.
- Joseph Wood Krutch
People that hate cats, will come back as mice in their next life.
- Faith Resnick
I have studied many philosophers and many cats. The wisdom of cats is infinitely superior.
- Hippolyte Taine
No heaven will not ever Heaven be; Unless my cats are there to welcome me.

There are two means of refuge from the miseries of life: music and cats.
- Albert Schweitzer
The cat has too much spirit to have no heart.
- Ernest Menaul
Dogs believe they are human. Cats believe they are God.

Time spent with cats is never wasted.
- Colette
Some people say that cats are sneaky, evil, and cruel. True, and they have many other fine qualities as well.
- Missy Dizick
You will always be lucky if you know how to make friends with strange cats.
- Colonial American proverb
Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.
- Joseph Wood Krutch
I got rid of my husband. The cat was allergic.
My husband said it was him or the cat... I miss him sometimes.

Hope you laughed! Talk to you on the blog!
