  1. Jacqueline Garrard Says:

    So I suppose I am a cat.
    A comforting feline fragile and small.
    No worries about finding food nonfat.
    Under the porch is suitable for the next rainfall.

    Tell me all of your stories western.
    Pet me as much as you desire.
    I’m not asking for anything in return.
    Just a simple gesture not to cause you to perspire.
