reluctant october

how divinely you dance
around the lace
barely breathing secrets
and angelic half truths
last words swallowed up
tightly, smartly
in your hot little hand
a carrot dangled over
my bear trap heart

    The Bear's Opinion

    July's spinning silk
    becomes October's dreamy
    meditation on love
    afloat in the patch
    of late red berries.

    We eat
    ursine opinions
    we've gathered in haste,
    in such a hurry now that
    winter approaches us
    with all its due speed.

Say something!
