(July Poem a Day #2 Theme: That's when I gave him/her my________)
My housemate’s tiny Calico cat
named, unfortunately, after
Trademarked brand of fastening type,
steps between the fruit my assistant
absently placed in the window without
recognizing how often duo of kitty roommates
seek that window in search of uncirculated air.
She walks with grace
that any en pointe prima ballerina
would envy; careful not
to place filthy feline feet
on my food.
That’s when I gave her my praise
via poetry and plan on
buying her a new toy.
