By Anna DesLauriers,
A small black coffee.
Hissing, spitting, scared.
Taking charge and taking names.
Playful, tender, young.
A crunching machine.
A soft roadblock in the hallway.
A medium mocha.
Timid, learning, loving.
Spending time in the sun.
Always caring, always stretching, always sleeping.
Tired of your shit.
A large macchiato.
Inquisitive, curious, youthful.
Batting at any toy around.
Loyal, selectively affectionate, a free spirit.
Bites the hand that feeds,
While also protecting the hand that comforts.
