Patience Worth to Pearl Curran, initial contact: "I make my bread at thy hearth. Good friends, let us be merrie. The time for work is past. Let the tabby drowse and blink her wisdom to the firelog."

“Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her.” Revelations 18:8

“Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold” - The Second Coming, W.B. Yeats


Is to as are to
Center, it won't hold
Dead hand signal from a
Dweller on the threshold

What is Patience Worth?
Fetch once flesh? Hypnic jerk?

Fistful of cemetery dirt?

Trust and belief come
Crying at the back door
Milk will run out and they
Won’t come a-round no more

Divine, scry, and dowse
Or let the tabby drowse

Blinking wisdom through the house

I will know good deed from sin
On the day my plague comes in
