First day, Year Of The Cat, my love,
imagine that, sharing secret cheshire grins
about the world a’whirling in its mad and wondrous futile spin

Second day Year of the Cat, my dear,
we shall be en-bereted hep and Jazzy cats tootling
wild and fulsome toons which chase the blue and lonely moon

Third day Year of the Cat should be
fireside curled a’purr with warmth just drowsing through,
a mutual life radiant as you, whispering, together any dream will do

Fourth day Year of the Cat and all the many after that
we will spend our lazy days beside ourselves as further proof
there is no word on earth can come between the one the you and me the two

Well, let me just say this, you are far too beautiful for an old dog like me. You’re smarter and quicker than I am so I already know that I don’t stand a chance in any negotiation, all I can do is hold out for the best deal I can get, need and power being in inverse proportion and all, and seeing as all I have to offer is a handful of tiny coloured pearls, I figure I will just leave them here in this open window, my love, between my poor bed and the vast Moroccon night and wait for you to take pity on my poor soul, so completely absorbed in you that nothing else exists but a rhythm and two bright stars sparkling in an eternity of luscious dark curls,

and if they are still there in the morning, they are yours,
