Persistent Assistant

A persistent assistant

and ever-present friend

he’s with me wherever I’m at

it’s an established trend


In the bed

on the pot

across the street

by the vacant lot


On the chair

when I read

by the table

when I feed


He needs to know

what I’m doing

and watches around corners

(I don’t know who he thinks he’s fooling)


Wherever I go

he is there

as if my being

is his only care


But once in a while

I spy on him as he’s sleeping

watching him move paws and whiskers

wondering, what’s he dreaming?
