The Jane Kenyen poem “The Blue Bowl” deals with the death of a cat. The poem describes how the owners just dig a whole and scrap the cat and his bowl in. Then they just push dirt in on top of him. After the cat is buried the people just hang around the house and eat. The poem states that it stormed all night but cleared up the next morning. One of the people in the story says that there are sorrows keener than losing a cat. It is just like the person that always seems to say something wrong.
