Little dogs
sleeping in
the sunbeam.

Conserving
energy
for defence.

In case of
slamming car
doors or cats.

Seagulls cry
screaching calls,
skydiving.

Spiralling
through blue skies
watching us.

Picnic lunch
temptation
French fry thieves.

Lasting smile
lingering
memory.

You and I
lakeside walks
sunset dreams.

What once was:
happiness.
Now a void.

Super-size?”

My fake smile

is unfeigned

on pay day.
