Newton, My Hamster

Lived in a terrarium—
a big clear plastic ball
open on top,
white plastic base.

I put in cedar chips,
a water bottle,
a food dish,
a Pringles can to sleep in.

Being nocturnal,
he’d make a racket at night,
scooting round and round
with his little paws going.

I gave him hamster treats
about as big as tater tots.
He’d put one in each cheek pouch,
then unable to fit in his Pringles can.
