visible punishment

very quiet and moving without hesitation
i am not supposed to
speak unless i say just the right thing
acting interested without staring too hard
become more relaxed and polite as the day wears on
like a kitten getting more comfortable per hour passed
even in total silence i can remain fully focussed
perhaps i know your time is money just like mine
unless i hear you talk i do not make a sound
not one move do i make unless you want me to
if i concentrate hard enough my breathing makes no noise
so my attention is completely on you and if you
happen to want a touch i will be near or if
maybe you make a joke my smile and laugh will be appropriate
every bite of the meal will be followed by a napkin wipe
nice to know this is all i to do
to have you continue to keep me around
