Good morning, puppy

You press your little wet nose against

My shoulder my elbow my thigh my naval

You breathe little breaths raggedly, stubbornly, into all those places

You never stay sleeping

My little pet

Sometimes, in the morning

I’m aware of you watching me

But shamefully, pretend to still be asleep

Until I hear your sad little sigh of resignation.

Fine, you seem to say, I guess she’s not awake yet.

What a mixture of guilt and relief

When I turn around and say, just kidding… Good morning, puppy
