"trees luxurious and the sunlight playing in their midst"

We three were enjoying the playful rays of sun that afternoon,
the kind of sun that inspired the orange man to groom himself and to do yoga,
and prepared Mr Sweet Pants for
heavenly reflections.

MrSweetPants asked me to read him this poem that he had read on a different website, and so I did:

If you are happy, I will give you an apple,
if you are anxious, I will twist your arm,
and if you permit me, I will be glad to hold you
close to my heart forever and do you no harm.

If I am happy, will you give me an apple?
If I am anxious, you may twist my arm.
And if you would like to, I would like you to hold me
close to your heart forever and do me no harm.

This is a bargain, only two can make it.
This is a covenant offered with desperate calm,
it being uncertain that lovers can drive out demons
with the gift of an apple or the twist of an arm.  (Covenant, Tennessee Williams)

The orange man licked his lips
and gave me the 'I have plans for you look'!
Thankfully he fell into the pile of catnip and I was spared.
MrSweetPants was still meditating!

We promise to hold close to our hearts...

Catboys sent their warmest wishes and juiciest kisses ever!
