Morning

Distracting from Rooibos steam

a white-pawed black cat
tip tap dances on stony roofs,
almost-smile, lapping milk-white chinmouth,

And I think, fleeting, how nice it might be
to be an occasional pet –
perhaps just five minutes daily;
a Sunday interlude hand-nuzzle.

Hold the thought, and scribble (purr) you an e-mail
to make you work-desk smile-squirm.

Lovely.

The thing about me is you give me a hand-nuzzle and I take the whole body-rub.

Um. Yeah, this was beautiful.
