How he is


I like to watch how is he with others
but sometimes he's different with me
oh sure he can play rough
but at times he handles me so tenderly
it is that which disarms my defenses
and stops me in my tracks
when I am the least prepared
he swoops in
he is highly skilled at that
but anything can be learned
maybe he will teach me too
if I can follow long enough
without tripping
maybe learn how to do it too
I like to watch how he is with others
feels much safer than
how he is with me
from a distance there is room for escape
and space for objectivity

    What would happen if you did accidently trip? Maybe it is just me but I get a sense of foreboding from this poem. As if there may be a price to be paid somewhere. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Conscience is instinct bred in the house,
Feeling and Thinking propagate the sin
By an unnatural breeding in and in.
I say, Turn it out doors,
Into the moors.
