Morning Celebrity

 

Morning Celebrity

A morning 

sofa celebrity 

never sits in peace 

drinking coffee 

checking email 

posting blogs 

admirers relentlessly 

throw themselves 

      at her feet 

beg for attention 

whine for affection

paw at her arms 

drape themselves 

     over her shoulders 

she crinkles paper 

they freeze

ears perk up 

eyes scope hers 

eyebrows raise

    in a question mark

      of anticipation

tails wag like 

    cautious stalkers 

they wait

    for her to make a move 

finally

a biscuit for each 

sends the paparazzi pets 

off to remote locations 

to eat their treats 

in peace
