I’m so refined I take my dinner on a silver platter
and drink from the finest crystal. Nothing but the best
I’ll thank you to have it prepared at precisely
the time I demand and maybe even reward you with a gift
or two –
a serenade of contentment
or a velvety soft mouse
lovingly placed in your shoe.
I pose for your photos,
bounce colorful balls of yarn
and swat at that ridiculous plastic fish
on a loop.
When the day is done
and you retire to your room
all is quiet
except for me,
chasing my tail across the moon.
