My Bookends

My Bookends, By Brian37 (AKA Brian James Rational Poet on FB/META and @Brianrrs37 on Twitter)

Empty coffee cup
8 am two hours up
Now fed and romped

They take a nap
One above my head
One at my feet

Not only is it neat
The joy it gives me
To have their company

To watch them wrestle
To watch them scamper
To watch them burrow

In the soda box
Hide and pounce
In playful bounce

To watch my bookends
Get tuckered out
And make their bedding

Above my head
And at my feet
Oh yes oh yes

It’s really neat.
The love they give me
Can’t be beat.

Anneplath loves to sleep above my head on my pillow and Kelly loves to sleep at my feet. I love my bookends.
