Dogs and buttered toast aren’t cats | Nolcha Fox

because they land wrong side down.

You are a cat, elegant

in words, in motion.

I’m not fooled

by slick persuasion.

At heart you are 

a dirty dog.

Your toast is buttered

with margarine.


Nolcha has written all her life, starting with poop and crayons on the walls. Her poems have been published in Lothlorien Poetry JournalAlien Buddha ZineMedusa’s Kitchen and others. Her chapbooks, “My Father’s Ghost Hates Cats,” and “The Big Unda,” are available on Amazon. Nominee for 2023 Best of The Net.
