Thou
hast
covered
me
in
my

womb.

or so,

and the author.
________________
[LOUD, COMMANDING VOICE.]
"Child!
Open your
EYES!"

(Squint.)
(Frown.)
(Squint.)
(Squirm.)
"It's all..... BLURRY!"

[NOD.]

(Squint.)
(Sucking on thumb.)
"How come it's
all......BLURRY,
DADDY?"

[SMILE.]
"That is how
I made you."
[PAUSE.]
"Listen
to Me,
child."

(Sucking on thumb,
irritably.)
(Squinting.)
"WHAT?"

[WHISPER.]
"When I say
so......you are
going to fall
in love,
child."

(Yell.)
"What's.....'SAT?"

[INFINITELY PATIENT VOICE.]
"Listen to Me."

(Squinting.)
(Nodding.)
(Sucking.)
(Squirming.)

[SMILE.]
"It will be
about....
four years,
from now."

(Squinting,
really hard.)
"What's a'..... YEAR?"

[WHISPER.]
"You will
see something,
and...
will hear something."

(Irritable yell.)
"But......everything's
all BLURRY,
DADDY!"

"Nonetheless."
[SMILE.]
"It is
My Command."

(Anxious squint.)
(Sucking on thumb,
really hard.)
"What do I gotta
....DO?"

[CHUCKLE.]
"Nothing.
It will just
happen, child."

(Big brown eyes
squinting, and
blinking, anxiously.)
"Uh, oh."

[NOD.]
"You will
see something:
small,
and
very soft-looking...
with a long tail."

"But I can't SEE,
DADDY!"

"It doesn't matter,
child. You are going
to fall in love.....
the moment you
hear its squeak."

"A.....SQUEAK?"

[NOD.]
"Then......a meow."

"What's a M'OW?"

[DELIGHTFUL NOD.]
"It will be soft
to touch, and
have small pointed
EARS."

"What's a' EAR?"

[WHISPER.]
"It will
have long
whiskers, also."

"What's'a'WISSER?"

[DELIGHTED LAUGH.]
"You will hear
its cry,
and you will
fall in love!"

"Then.....WHAT,
DADDY?"

"That is it."
[SMILE.]
"The love will
never cease:
no matter how old
you are. Never."

"Whatsa'.... NEVER?"

"Just listen
to Me."
[SAD VOICE.]
"You will FORGET...
ever calling Me,
Daddy."

(Stop squinting
for one moment.)
(Anxiously squirm.)
"No.....NO, DADDY!"

[NOD.]
"You will forget
this moment,
child. One day,
you will even hate
Me."

(Eyes all filled up
with tears.)
(Sucking on thumb,
nervously.)
"NO!
NO,
DADDY!"

"It will be a long
time.........and
then,
even calling
Me, 'FATHER',
will make you cringe."

(Squinting,
rather nervously.)
"What's a' KINGE?"

[QUIET VOICE.]
"And,
forget.....
that,
even the
thumb
you were
sucking on,
was
Mine."
****************
I will
praise
Thee;
for
I am
fearfully
and
wonderfully
made.
[Psalms 139:14]

In memory
of a little black
kitty, eleven years old,
who died of cancer last week.
