My Frenemy

Neighbor’s mischief monster is at it again
Big wet nose on my lap
Muddy paws on my toes
Must move soon or i’ll be trapped

I cannot bear the thought
His breath on my face; so smelly and hot
The drool on my skin
His fur on my clothes
Wet from his romp in an algae filled swamp

Look away!
He knows your weakness for sad eyes and sniffles
Soft brown shades of amber and copper
Filled with the wonders of the universe
Learning your face
Watching your smile
Eagerly waiting

Too late
He has you now

Go get the secret toy you got for him
yesterday
