Vacuum cleaner

More kitten. She and I, we frenzy about different things. But when the vacuum cleaner, or whatever counts as a vacuum cleaner, goes home, we settle down together, to hum and purr, respectively. 

The kitten
At the sound and fury
Of the vacuum cleaner.
So much more
Ends up on the floor
In its wake.
When the vacuum cleaner
Goes home
The kitten will eventually
Go sound asleep
On my shoulder
As I hum lullabies.
I remember these times
With my own small ones.
Now it is a kitten
On my shoulder
