Productivity according to the cat

I think I needed the space today.  The cat is helping me be as productive as I need to be.

The cat is glad I stayed home.
Every time I think
I may be productive,
He settles in closer,
Stretches a leg or even a mere toe,
Settles in closer
The way cats do
Before they settle in
For their afternoon nap.
This of course is separate
From their morning nap.
Stay here
Stay here.
Stay right here.
Here is all the productivity
Called for:
A body to lean into
An occasional head scritch.
Stay here.
I know you stayed home
For me.
