THE UNUSUALLY RELIABLE
Of the two lovers in the long grass,
Bobby is the one wearing black fur.
Fox, possibly Mink.
There is a graze on his best side
but it is not so obvious
as the gold on his finger
heavy and soft.
The slightest trace of lace
caresses each cuff fearlessly.
His lover has her feet up high.
High enough to startle a Humming Bird
from which he recovers.
