‘Cat of Chefchaouen’, Poem by Teena Marcus

Birds of Seville

Birds of Seville

I peered through the windows,
I sat in the escarpment,
I walked the walls of
castles and ruins
(I found cave-men
I strode across the desert..
To find you.

I sat back
At home I
purred like a cat
and waited,
In the doorstep –

Cat of Chaouen

Cat of Chaouen

I heard angels,
And far away
Hollow murmurs,
as the devil crowed
with quick and
clever verse.

Fallen promises
and lies spat up..
All the while heads bobbing
(like dogs in cars) –
from apathy or derision

On the sidelines
I finished first.

A faceless face
voice soft and
I was surprised by
No glimmer of pride
Hand stretched out,
And fed the

A barren track,
Of cantankerous verse
Will lead nowhere,
But wind up
With a closed door.
