Jill, At Halloween Time #5

The wide plastic bowl
of warmed-up milk starts steaming

and just as quickly
goose-bumps form on Jill’s arms when
she pushes open

the back door. “Here girl!”
Jill says. “Snack time!” The llama
hums and purrs and trills

and rubs against Jill.
That’s return-on-investment,”
Jill whispers. “Good girl.”

The End
