In our bedroom, where we've been known to linger...
He's falling asleep, and as he twitches into unconsciousness
his claws graze my arm.
His head slides down, muscles relaxing after a hard day
of naps.
I worry when he wheezes and coughs
on occasion, every year that passes
is a larger proportion of his life
than it is mine.

Aye, well...we sleep another night away.
