Assigned myself as the petof two local raccoons.
I nest in their tree, eatleftovers, sleep at their feet
some call me pest but not mymasters. They take good care.
They are warm and so am I.When winter sets in we
suffer together, burrow together,hold each other against the world.
If spring should come, we’llsee if my wings will grow.
