When I grow up I plan to keep
Eleven cats and let them sleep
On any bedspread that they wish
And feed them people’s tuna fish.

-Maxine Kumin

A huge thanks to Kathy in Michigan (who tells me that this is a favorite fun poem of hers) for not only having introduced me to Maxine Kumin, but to have saved everyone from my normal Rilke mourning weeds.
