Poem # 7



Sweet Little Black Kitty turned on the Caps Lock to write this poem. That usually means she thinks it’s a Big Idea. But, here I see she’s using the caps sardonically, working through her Andy Warhol Campbell’s Soup Can phase, underlining and celebrating the obvious.

The artist’s statement? “We are in the midst of a digital revolution.” A revolution in its earlier stages, say, between a three and a four on some kind of feline scale. And the rejoinder to that statement is, “Duh! That’s as obvious as a Campbell’s Soup Can!” Exactly her point.

What the poem is ultimately saying, I believe, is “Let’s get beyond the critical dialectic and move on to grooming ourselves,” as she did after writing this.
