Big Sexy


Miguel Xelhua

Your fur as soft as a top of a muffin. Your breath stinkier than a bag of fish.

You’re there every morning, Those big brown eyes looking waiting for a drink from the sink.

You’re Meows echoing through the hallway like a humpback whale.

You resemble Garfield head to toe. Your weight could compete with an elephant.

You’re blazing orange fur as bright as a light bulb.

Seeing you run over when I open that can of tuna.

You’re pleading  face when you’re hungry.

That time when you got lost in our new apartment building.

Late nights where you lay by my side as I fall asleep.

Headbutting my hand for attention like a ram.  Your presence makes me feel safe.
