Stone 8, or, the longing of squirrels

on a path this morning
in the park
i paused to gaze at the bark of an
ancient tree

as i stopped
a little squirrel
domesticated as he was
put his front paw on my running shoe
and with
imploring eyes said,

'do you have something for me?'

  1. That's a great image, Lisa.
    Unfortunately, I'd have seen the poor little thing, shrieked, and jumped three feet in the air, probably scaring the squirrel half to death.
