As an English major and a devoted fan of all things feline, I clearly had to check out this week's book. I hate to let April go by without saying something about it being National Poetry Month, but as the days ticked by, I thought, well, this year I'll just have to let it go. After all, poetry is not for everyone, and my personal preoccupation with prosody doesn't have to be called out every year. Ah, but then I happened upon "The Maine Coon's Haiku," and now you, dear reader, must put up with another "Check It Out" tribute to poetry.
