Contention

I have a chair where I like to work.

My cat has a chair where she likes to sleep.

It’s the same chair.

And neither of us likes to share.

She’s had it all day.

But now she has gone for a bite.

I could swoop in and reclaim the space

The throne from which I would reign

frankly, to her disdain

Or I could walk away.

    • Thank you! She’s back in the chair right now, you know. I haven’t been able to paint all day. She’ll wait until the sun goes down and I don’t have enough light to work. Tell me why I am so in love with this cat.
