I have a singular cat
with a name to match.
Did I get it wrong?
The number one
in Swahili is moja;
I didn’t know
and called her Mojo,
because she’s magic
and addictive!

Mojo at 10 months

My response to Imaginary Garden with Real Toads April One / One Love

Marian welcomes us to National Poetry Month and asks us to celebrate our love of poetry in April with a chaotic cacophony of words and verses! Our first prompt is to write poems about being first, or on the subject of one–the power of one, one love, first in line, one is the loneliest number…

I thought I’d start on a light-hearted note.
