Where The Small Is Mighty
by Mark Nenadov
(Essex, Ontario, Canada)

Overlooking the scene of a crime
our calico perches on a chair
eying the explosion aftermath
injured toys and books
scattered everywhere.

It seems we clean this up every night
and a sort of strange entropy prevails
all the toys go to flight
and the cat strikes
an Egyptian pose.

The explosion force is revealed
on the loose and bursting forth
with boundless energy
which never rests
and never sits still.

The clock ticks
like an austere night watchman
chopping little segments of time
circling the merry-go-round once more
until our child “entropies” again.
