tiger

tiger lying by a pool of clear water

in the sun

swishing his tail

with this expression on his face like he’s bored

but maybe he’s just cozy 

tiger closes his eyes and yawns

sharp teeth

huge claws retract

tiger opens his eyes 

squinting 

brow furrowing 

he sees something

shifts onto his shoulder and grabs at it

it’s just a moth, tiger

but tigers like to pounce

and catch

and play

and then rest

tiger blinks from sunlight

closes his eyes 

and sleeps

deeply
