…I sit still,
I take a stance, a crouch, a lay on the bed.
I give human the photo op,
not moving for the time it takes the camera to signal its readiness.
Averting my luminous avocado eyes, for a moment,
as I dare not let her get too attached to them.
I bitch with a cackle, “Hurry up human, my patience is none!”
“Take the picture now,
so we can be done…with this nonsense.”
And it is done.
You are welcome human,
It is only for the way you bring out my queenly beauty that I allow this imposition.
The incessant purring meant nothing, nothing at all.
Now, go away.
