Skunk!

Jack meowed, feed me.

I opened the door to the garden shed

9 pm dark

Opened the lid to the can

Scooped a handful of kibble

Reached over the bed

Pink quilted twin

Ready to drop the kibble

Flash of bright white

Inches from my hand

Stopped me!

One foot long

Eight inches tall

I dropped the kibble

and ran

screaming

skunk!  Skunk!

into the house

Screaming!

Laughing!

Peeing my pants!

She didn’t spray me.
