Happiness is

Scratchy paws and a soft belly

Forever scrambing to get nearer to me

Careful that each part of his body

Legs, tail, chin, belly

Is atop some part of mine

I breathe out

He breathes in

Our air becomes recyclable

My hands are buried deep inside his fur

Until my lover approaches

Flips him on his back

And tickles him:

Scaroocharoocharooch ah!

Scaroocharoocharooch ah!

He sings
