Roy Fuller. In Memory of My Cat Domino: 1951-66

Rising at dawn to pee, I thought I saw you

Curved in a chair, with head raised to look at me,

As you did at such hours. But the next moment,

More used to the gloom, there was only a jar

And a face-cloth. time enough, nonetheless,

For love's responsibilities to return

To me.

The unique character of the dead

Is the source of our sense of mourning and loss;

So,back in bed, I avoided calling up

What I know is intact in my mind, your life,

Entirely possessed as it was by my care.

I could conceive you not as dead but merely

Gone before me to a world that sends to us

Decreasing intimation of its beings -

No doubt because they find us in the end

Pathetic, worthy, but of small importance.

So long had we been together it never

Occurred to me I might fall somewhat behind.

Even when, familiar fur in my hands,

The sickly wave of barbiturate rose up,

I thought it was me who was journeying on -

But looking back there is only emptiness,

Your dusty medicaments and my portrait

Taken with you: sad mode of life you've outpaced.

What were the dominoes and where did they fall according to 'Where the Domino Fell' by James S. Olson and Randy Roberts?

The Domino referred to in the title was Viet Nam. The book purports to be a history of the war in Viet Nam and its aftermath. The term "Domino" (as in The Domino Theory) was used in the argument that if there was no intervention to stop the communist movement in Southeast Asia, all of the countries in that region would eventually fall like "dominos" to the communists. The authors obviously promote their own viewpoint with which readers may or may not agree. Hope that helps.
