My Dog’s Left Ear

My dog’s left ear

A spotted pony’s nose

The tiny bat’s wing

Velvet reminders

Of my heart’s desire

For intimacy with the

Wild

Where

I find

Myself

In these small

 Soft places

I knew so well

In the time

Before I

Out grew

Animal

Dreams

Here now

I breath

In and out

Dog

Pony

Bat

Dog

Pony
