Could be verse: poetry ripped from the headlines
Lines upon learning that South Korean scientists, by manipulating a fluorescent protein gene, have produced cloned cats that glow in the dark
I dream of glowing cats, with whiskers red like heated wire.
Supernaturally knowing cats, of whom none may inquire —
all ember-lipped, and each ear tipped with a tint of angelic fire.
Much sympathy with earthly things these cats do not possess:
The world in all her multitude has failed to impress.
Quite over it, they quietly sit, and spookily fluoresce.
