My Dog Bandit

The Chair Thief

My chair awaits
My dog Bandit
My lapdog Bandit
Is lying in my chair
Keeping it warm
Warm for me
Hoping I will sit with him
Not on him

I walk over
Looking at him
Talking to him
As if he were human
“Do you like my chair”
“is it warm enough for you”
“Can I sit down”
He looks at me
Cocking his head
As if to say “Huh?”

I start to sit
He moves over to the side
He stands there as I sit
Then he steps over
Walking on my lap
Licking my neck
My face
Giving me love
Like he’s thanking me
For keeping him warm
On this chilly day
