Catnip Trip

By Marelime

Catnip Trip poem by Jake Waller

Woolly-eyed, wool

ball running…away

Should I chase it? leave it

stretch, relax and stretch again

the scent takes all my senses,

I’m floating and I’m senseless

Bliss

now up, to leap, and lick

and claw, and roll

And down

purring to

Sleep

and dream

of my sweet

nepeta cataria
