Tigger

in the freezer
on the bottom shelf
on the right of the bottom shelf
in the back of the
Ice Cream Sandwich box

is the last Ice Cream Sandwich

sneak into the kitchen
open the freezer
take it out

the Ice Cream Sandwich

carefully

don’t make any noise

peel the paper off
the Ice Cream Sandwich

carefully

you might want to step outside
onto the porch to peel the paper
off the Ice Cream Sandwich

if not, let it be on your head

because

if Tigger even thinks
you are getting
an Ice Cream Sandwich

there will be no peace for you
whilst you attempt to eat it

because

she will be in your face
butting your head
clawing your hands

trying to get
some Ice Cream

relentless

until you give her some

relentless

until
it
is
all
gone

you see

Tigger the cat is 19 years old
and can eat whatever she wants

she chooses to eat
Rotisserie Chicken
and Ice Cream

so every two days
we go to the store
to get another
Rotisserie Chicken

because

it must be fresh
the chicken

because

Tigger the cat is 18-years old
and can eat whatever she wants

and when you want
an Ice Cream Sandwich
you have to share

because
