While listening to CATS the musical on vinyl
the dog watches suspiciously each time
the needle moves on its own
Deep sighs as she relaxes
I am coloring  this dog selfie coloring book for adults
That is supposed to make me feel less anxious
then the dog scares the cat
And the cat jumps on my back
drawing blood as she scratches my left shoulder
A blank stare at my scream
before she splays herself out on the kitchen counter
Where she knows she's safe
