stone #18

i watch my cat wash,
his tongue a bubblegum elastoplast,
his little paw like segments of pink plasticine,
his concentration uncluttered, intense,
eyes wide as green marbles,
only stopping for an instant to glare accusingly at his tail.

I can see that feline accusatory glare perfectly here.

'bubblegum elastoplast' - perfect, and so well observed.

Thanks all! My cat is a great source of small stones - he is a funny, lovely little creature ;)
