stealthy, slinky
the cat
tires of being clever
of observing
of chasing the light
or batting the string

playful, energetic
the dog
tires of being happy
of napping
of chasing the ball
or licking the hand

frantic, nocturnal
the hamster
tires of being tiny
of gnawing
of being caged in
or running on the wheel

loud, fierce
the lion
tires of being feared
of protecting
of always watching over
or roaring at others

light, melodic
the bird
tires of being scared
of singing
of nesting over and over
or flying from place to place

the animals within
just need a rest

Daydreaming as a profession

Daydreaming and then, maybe, writing a poem about it. And that's my life.
