Off to dreamland in Grandmother's pearls*.
Shift cat again.
Belly, back, side, other side.
Cat leaves with utter disdain.
Belly, side, back, belly again...
As a lake of pearls
Rolling along the waves and folds
Of these horrid pink sheets.
Dribbled across the rug
Up and down the hall.
Sprinkled on the bathroom tile
*Thank heavens they're not real pearls.
