A Geometric Feline Study (by Jake Waller)

Smooth curves

Slim lines

Soft

But poised

A spring coiled

Compact power

 

Ears sharp

Alert triangles

Tents intent

On picking up

The smallest sign

Of prey to find

 

Sleek fur

Jet black

Or mottled tabby

Friendly, content

Or raised, defensive

 

Eyes,

Unique

Guarded, they survey

Then, with time,

Playful and bright

 

The form, whole

As one

The Cat

A Geometric Feline Study by Jake Waller almost puts a mathematical side to the shape and appearance of a cat, for example, his description of the cat’s ears as “alert triangles” is different but extremely creative . Carefully and promptly explaining the common features of your average cat, Jake Waller has, once again, managed to create a relatable but beautiful poem about the nature of cats and shows how all the characteristics added together create the animal we adore today.
