Clockwork Cat

Dedicated to K Shawn Edgar

No flesh and blood within.
No fur upon my metal skin.
But, I am warmed,
Each bit and part,
By the beating,
Of my steam powered heart.
With my little gears,
And cogs, all whirring,
You’d swear it sounds,
A lot like purring.
I’m made of clockwork,
Wheels and springs.
Not real, but perhaps,
The next best thing.

      1. Metropolis. That’s a good movie. It was actually the very first DVD I bought. Had seen it in a Jon Lewis film class at OSU, and then said Holy crap I have to own that on DVD.
