He watches, not exactly still
Not quite quiet, almost hid
Sprawled upon my window sill
Spectator to what I did

Not comprehending, or so I think
Not judging, or at least not much
He watches while I have a drink
And reaches lazily for a touch

I work, and I forget he’s there
And beat each word to fit its place
Then glance up to meet his golden stare
His calm relaxed and sleepy face

I go back to work, for that is that
Someone has to feed the cat
