Nixie

by Robin B. Lipinski


Written after reading the short story, 'The Woman in the Lamp' by author David W. Landrum

Modeeern societee, (purr, lick, purr)
Walkeen the eedge of realeety.
Masteer
Geeniee
Seex
(Meowee!)
Takieeng the (change) words, si,si, ee, eee...

Kingdom of sand: I come from the three circles beyond the cool cleer pool.
Padding acrosss time to see my creeation.
An author,
a loveer
a cat
a human; magical, full of true undeerstanding.

Licking the paw while reeading/writeeng what must be
the story continues beeyond the seeming conclusion
freedom or slaveree,
(smiling)

Eeyee! Eeyee!
The hounds of ha(e)ll
master of the bottle uncorkeed come,
life of mine
the story continues beeyond the seeming conclusion...
Mee-owee.

it never 'the ends', after getting three wishes.
