"Study of a Cat" (1918) by Suzanne Valadon [1865-1938].
an artist needs a cat
for its role as painter's
soul mate--a comic, a critic,
a comfort, and a model
--not for the tail dragged
across a wet canvas

A cherita is a haiku-like poem of three stanzas that tells a "story." The first stanza is one line and sets the scene. Stanza two is two lines, stanza three is three lines. A cherita terbalik is a cherita with the order of the stanzas rearranged.
