TRESPASSING

 
IMG_3610

 

We look both ways
at the end of the road,
the well-honed edge

of commerce and convenience,
trucks and traffic
across the bridge—

river without water.
In their own world,
some deer forget:

quick scramble of hooves,
a clatter slipping
on concrete and asphalt.

We look both ways
wanting wild cover
and shade, leave

great hearts behind
to trespass
into an urgent world.
