Of Poetry and Felines

Following on from my post of 1 July, https://kmorrispoet.com/2020/07/01/poet-kevin-morriss-interview-on-the-world-poetry-reading-series-is-due-to-be-aired-at-9-pm-uk-time-on-thursday-2-july/, I am pleased to announce that a podcast of my interview on Vancouver Co-Op Radio’s the World Poetry Reading Series is now available and can be found here, http://www.coopradio.org/content/world-poetry-caf%C3%A9-96.

My interview starts approximately 20 minutes into the podcast, and runs for some 15 minutes.

I listened back to my interview using Google Chrome, so know that Chrome works. However, as is so often said, other browsers are available!

During the course of the podcast, you will hear the interventions of Tommy the cat. He did, I think enjoy my poems, or perhaps his mews where his way of saying, “is there not something more interesting I could be doing, than listening to a middle-aged poet reading his poetry!”.

Kevin

Curvaceous

When I dated a young lady most curvaceous
Who said, “good sir, you are very sagacious!”.
And I said, “thank you so much.
With young ladies, I always go dutch”.
She said, “I can be more than flirtatious …!”

Neef the Thief

There once was a man named Neef
Whose occupation was that of professional thief.
He threatened a lady from Bristol
Who, with her sword and pistol,
Brought that thief named Neef to grief!

Awaking in the Depths of the Night

Awaking in the depths of the night
I saw a girl dressed in white.
When I called her a ghoul
She said, “you stupid old fool!
I’m a vampire who likes to bite!”.

A Young Lady Eating Hot Buttered Toast

A young lady eating hot buttered toast
Said, “I am a most terrible ghost!”.
She had large feet
And really could eat!
And she stole my hot buttered toast!

I Scent the Early Summer Air

I scent the early summer air,
And there
Find a hint of autumn leaves.
The trees
Hold what will be gold
Once autumn calls, and leaves
Fall down,
To the ground.
For within this early summer air,
I scent the autumn hiding there.

Moral Purity

I met a group of young women
Who said, “sir, do you like sinning?”.
When I said, “I am pure!”.
They said, “are you quite sure?”,
And those women just couldn’t stop grinning!
