Black Cat and other poems

· Shirley Siaton Parabia

About this ebook

Thank you.

For the pain, through which I grope

my way in dazed wakefulness.

The void, where my tongue-tips

catch the essence of a hungering moon.

A collection of free verses written over the years in various stages of a young woman’s life, ‘Black Cat and other poems’ is a journey of self-discovery, awareness and growth.

Each poem is a story culled from an existence well savored, much like a cat’s fabled nine lives. There are tales of lust, loss, melancholy, decay and awakening.

Author Shirley Siaton gives her heart, body and soul to the reader bare-bones, with no inhibitions or pretensions.
