(Four Hours)

The cat acts like
he wants nothing to do with us
when all we’re doing is giving him
an exaggerated version
of what he’s been whining about
for (four) hours.
apparently a family hug
isn’t what he craves
just a lap to appropriate
or a shoulder to perch
is the desired ends.

He sure goes about complaining
in a way that suggests
he doesn’t know
what he wants.
