Gyroscope Review 16-1 - Page 11

Magnetosphere or Pole Cat by Sylvia Cavanaugh My feline traverses the cosmic whisk
 whose paleo secrets are captured
 in deep subterranean stone
 garnet bones of the earth
 by scientists with their instruments magnetic song resonates like notes plucked from parallel musical strings
 to orient my cat
 a billowing skyward harmony 
 pinched from discordant poles she flies like a carnival streamer
 caught in a solar wind
 down alleyways and streets
 beyond unknown buildings
 
 a charged particle she blows across meadows
 in the golden glow of dusk
 
 voice of the magnetic field
 is lost to me
 my lovely lonely hours
 adrift in a colossal world
