Prowling the Desk

What do you do
when you sit down to work
and a creature
leaps up on your lap?

What do you do
when you open your book
and the creature
lies down for a nap?

What do you do
when all you can see
is a snowstorm
of soft silver fur?

What can you do?
What choice do you have
but to cuddle
and hope for a purr?

This is Scout. She “helps” me write.
