Christmas Present

I glare

at the

gorgeous

glittery

gift given to me

as I patiently

wait

for the fun to

begin.

Did

the present

just fumble?

And maybe..

a whine?

Was it..

a living animal?

Suddenly,

I was pushed

toward the box

and

was told

to open it.

I noticed

three wholes

on top.

I then knew

it was a

pet.

I ripped

the wrapping

to a

bland

brown

box.

I open it..

to see..

a brown-eyed...

puppy.

He stares

at me with eyes

that spoke

of joy.

His nose

as red

as a rose

and is a

cold and wet

piece of ice.

His bark

sounded more of a

Yip.

I jumped up

with glee,

and thanked

my mother,

as my puppy

followed

behind.
