Alley Escapades | Day 86 | #the100dayproject
may have killed the cat; more likely
the cat was just unlucky, or else curious to see what death was like, having no cause
to go on licking paws, or fathering
litter on litter of kittens, predictably.
Nevertheless, to be curious
is dangerous enough.
To distrust what is always said,
what seems to ask odd questions, interfere in dreams, leave home,
smell rats, have hunches
Face it. Curiosity
will not cause us to die--
only lack of it will.
Never to want to see
the other side of the hill
or that improbable country
where living is an idyll
(although a probable hell)
would kill us all.
Only the curious
have, if they live, a tale
worth telling at all.
