An Upside Down Poem (# 4)

They are sleeping together now.
I don’t know what I expected,
but this wasn’t it.

She settles down next to him,
kisses him,
fits into the space where he is not.
And he lets her.

What do they do
when I am not looking?
I really wonder.

Did they start this when
I was working long hours?
They never let on at night.
I was totally clueless.

Maybe they needed me to be here.
I am here a lot now.
Lord knows I love them both
and if they love each other now,
I am ok with that.

My Cat and My Dog Fall in Love?

This is a followup to another upside down poem here.


  1. I love this. Gotta go check out the other upside-down poem, too.

  2. you had me going there....

    well done.

  3. There are 4 upside down poems. The first two have nothing to do with a dog or cat. The idea presented itself at Starbucks on Saturday as I was writing a poem about a guy I saw that morning. I find them amusing. The other two are here and here.

Feel free to critique the poetry. I employ a sophisticated thick hide technology.
