This month's Featured Poet presentation begins with a poem by Grace Cavalieri:

LEARNING FROM BUDDHA

The cat likes to lick
a piece of butter
at the end of a knife
propped up by the window
so he can watch the birds
today I forgot the butter and the knife
he didn’t care
he knows
some days
there are no birds.
