dog likes you best | cat likes me
but it’s mostly circumstantially
they’d rather we
together

dinner and local news | yell at the tv
crawlers spelt it wrong again | vociferate wildly
we all is doomed | it’s plain to see
together

communicate, illuminate, cultivate, elevate
cooperate, advocate, accentuate, assimilate
commiserate, procrastinate (perambulate)
together

you out watching the sunset | I’m in with the ballgame
I text you the plays | from 100 feet away
ain’t it nice spend this day
together

I’m walking the dog | you off riding your horse
I’m home with all the techy toys | you’re outside somewhere, of course
you nod off early | I stay up late
ain’t it great
together
