On Guard

Hodgepodge 002


She has moved her attention elsewhere,

to the breeze machine in the hall.

She sits on guard.


What pretty girl?

You say it is not your intent to guard the breeze machine?

What then?


Oh, you wait for entry into that other room,

the one with the softer mattress?

The room with a different smell and cool stuff?


Alas, Dear Extra Pillow,

access is denied for now,

you will have to wait for Natasha’s return.


Her eyes don’t blink, she doesn’t flinch.

The pretty girl is intent.

She sits on guard.
