smudged markings near your eyes

like a wide receiver on game day

but your’s are night games

with feet like tiny hands

foraging for food

  1. What a beautiful, quiet vignette you’ve created! I feel like I’ve been transported to a wooded area and have a secluded peek at nature’s gallary.
    My favorite bit is “feet like tiny hands foraging for food.”
