Christmas with the animals

Christmas Day 2010
our dog Roscoe
lies totally exhausted
-catatonic -
rigor mortis-imitating.
tongue hanging out,
after playing madly
with his Santa-brought
ping-pong ball,
thus showing his appreciation
for his small gift,

Mona the cat
ignores her new
fleece-lined bed
preferring her position
outside of it, yet
against the radiator.
"I may never go in it," she says.....
