Welcome are the passionately curious

"There was one Elephant--a new Elephant--an Elephant's Child--who was full of 'satiable curiosity, and that means he asked ever so many questions. And he lived in Africa, and he filled all Africa with his 'satiable curiosities." Rudyard Kipling

a protest is in order.
So much that people write on cats—
All the mystery expounded ad infinitum,
Saying, “Ah, that poem is a cat, and is so much more,”

then oblige a maudlin Lassie scribble,
saying, “There’s a good boy,”

have done with it,
And jump right back to writing psalms to their spastic god.
You sit, your tail fwapping in glee and speculation,
basking in the world that is your bone-yard.
