for a long time
Oscar the Grouch
has been my favorite Muppet
his graveled voice
his shining trashcan home
the way the lid pops up
and there he is
grumbling at the neighbors
and making funny commentary.

if i could give him a present
it would be an introduction
to two cats
(if they wanted to be his friends...
i think they might like his
interesting habitation.
I see them standing on the trashcan top
peering down
at Oscar's fuzzy face,
sniffing, purring
and wondering what's inside
the Grouchy Muppet
and his shining house...)
