for Annoyance

4/26/2004 c1 hengenjizai
"As things appear to be coming to a sort of climax, I have withdrawn to this place. It is cooler here, and nothing moves fast...
A cat has arrived, interrupting my narrative. It is a striped yellow tom with white chest and paws. He has long whiskers and yellow eyes... as he has gone to sleep on my knee, I shall proceed.
Where?
Nowhere, evidently. Yet, the impulse to narrate remains. Many things are not worth doing, but almost anything is worth telling...
"What's that?" I asked, pointing to a protuberance on the outside of the box. I did not ask what the box was, as it was quite clearly a box.
"The gun," Rover said with exited pride.
"The gun?"
"To shoot the cat."
"To shoot the cat?"
"Or to not shoot the cat,"...
"Where is the cat?" he asked at last.
"Where is the box?"
"Here."
"Where's here?"
"Here is now."
"We used to think so," I said, "but really we should use bigger boxes."
...
I shall miss the cat. I wonder if he found what it was we lost?"
-Schrodinger's Cat, Ursula K. Le Guin
Hmm. Have you read this story? I assume you have, seeing your screen name, but perhaps it is also a figure of speech. I don't know. Where did the cat go? Did he find what we've lost?

I'm sorry, but I didn't enjoy this poem at all. It had no feeling behind it. Spice it up a bit. You have good style, I like your others.

This must be the opposite of Alanis Morrissette's song Ironic, in which Alanis listed several things which were not ironic at all, but annoying, e.g. rain on a summer's day etc.

This poem lists things are very annoying indeed, and one ironic thing; the allergic reaction to something not eaten.

Maybe Alanis would be interested in recording this ?
