Allergic to the New Apartment

We sniffle

I press my face into

milky white tissues

 

The sterile ceremony

a fluttering pile

towers toward the ceiling

 

Meanwhile she rubs her face

across every patch

of carpet

 

Dirt and fuzz

cling to her sticky nose

for a free ride

 

We sneeze

I sigh in misery

feet dragging

 

She licks my face

sharing dusty kisses

just glad to be home

girly
