progress report

Hookey today. Yay!
called in sick. too bad I am.
doctor soon, then bed.

serene apartment
neighbors gone their daily way
just me and my cough.

plump and dignified
he curls on his mat smiling
he thinks "no shot now."

i call him to me.
the jig is up! time to hide
and pretend he's mad.

my begging pleases
a little boy who wants mom
to love only him.

so sorry you're sick
cuddle Harry, poor poked cat
cough, cough, hack, choke, sneeze
