TRANSFORMATION
(on the departure of Scruff-o the Wonder Cat)

My grief spills out upon the earth,
as endless as the journey of the Fool.
Of all the doubts that I have had
since leaping off the cliff that was my life.
Of all the deaths that I've been through
since landing in New York with just a suitcase
and my Scruff-o cat beside me -
No single one has broken my determination
to become my best of selves,
like Scruff-o's death has cracked my walking stick in two.
Not the loss of all my lovers and my friends,
not the loss of the city that harbored me a decade,
or the loss of Humor, my muse,
or the sidewalk sales of my possessions,
or the theft of all my jewels.
So why should the death of this old scruffy cat
turn my eyes into mountains
and my heart into the thistle of a rose?
Because for seven years he loved me.
That's all.
And I loved him back.
And with his death he told me:
Sever your connections with the limitations of the self.
Sever your connections with the past.
Then soar
    into the moment
    like a fool.
(circa 1982)
