When I get home my new kitten runs towards me
his back legs long as a fawn’s
I think of joey
the day the screen door blew open
him lost in green
you on the deck calling down
till joey’s eyes big like a fawn’s
landed on mine
and he ran through weeds higher than his head
ran to me
our sighs merging

We sighed too
on God’s rocks
above cool canyons cliffs
I held your arm
dizzy as I get with you in moonlight
drawn to fall

Oh, would that we could let go
tumble as we want to
run towards each other
like fawns
