Poem: Play It Cool …are you more of a puppy or a cat?

A poem from my book: With Open Arms: Poetry for Big Love and Real Life

When I become your friend, I want to do with gusto! Puppy-style! If you are a cat, I don’t know if we can work it out.

Cats are geniuses at "playing it cool". Me? Not so much!

Play It Cool

The fact that I met you

Means that I love you

I want to hang out

And talk with you

And walk with you

Do you want me

To act like

That’s not true

That! would be

Very hard

For me to do

I never learned

How

Or why

To play it cool
