The Naming of Cats

Inky Cat by Viviane Schwarz

Two minutes of poety for you. Close your eyes and think of your ineffable effable
Deep and inscrutable singular name.

(The painting is a portrait of Jane Porter’s cat Carl, by myself. I painted a hundred cats in ink last year, or maybe the year before, I’ll tell you about it another time perhaps.)

“The Naming Of Cats” by T.S. Eliot, read by Fede.
