Rub, II


I rub my head on Tony's hand as a world's parade of dachshunds, nose-to-tail, girdle the earth. I rub my cheek against the red catnip mouse and punch it with my hind legs as a policeman in large flat shoes swishes a daffodil into the alley next door. Once I rubbed against a man's teeth to wake him as he snored with his mouth open. The dining room table leg rubs against my haunches as I creep into the bathroom just in case someone turns on the tub spigot. I rub myself on a handful of garlic bulbs as a dustbeam grazes my tail. I rub my coat with my tongue as dust and dirt are scraped from my savage pumpkin fur.

It is clear that you have rubbing issues. Perhaps you should cut down on your catnip--or refuse to swallow whatever it is your angelheaded hipster of a master is force-feeding you in private, behind closed doors, far from the tender-hearted portrayal of affection this blog is meant to inculcate in its readers.
