Has yet // the hairy horror
Who stalks // the shadowed salon
Hastened heart-rent // from my household?
Monkey: ...very nice skaldic form, O Cat. Where did you pick that up?
Perfidous monkey // scatters many manuscripts
Leaf-lying // on the loveseat.
Monkey: I see. You've been going over my corrections then?
All the day long // document dozing
Downstairs the dog // lean and deadly
Office exile // existence I endure
Monkey: You're downstairs now. That's very brave of you.
Not yet devoured // though dog defiant
Stalks still // and stares
Frets, flehmens // and follows.
Fearless feline // faultless creeps
War-chants sings // wary walks
Into the lair // of the light-limbed darkness.
...and you can't deny, it looks like Grendel.
Monkey: I'm pretty sure the arms are smaller. But I admit, if something ten times my size was looking at me that way, I'd also be considering the fact that I am made of meat. You get extra pets for coming out. Just be smart and don't get cornered: I'm not sure I trust him yet.
Crafty canine // careless dwells
Inside Other Monkey's // isolated inhabitation.
Feisty feline // freak-show braving
Ventures valiant // ventrally--ooo! Dogfood! Yay!
crunch crunch crunch
Satin cat-feet // softly sneak
Into broad-barred // bed of canine
Creeping onward // kibble craving.
Cat: Your alliteration sucks.
