animal poem

It Feels Soft

the deer is nuzzling
while I nap on this
rock beneath the tree
near the creek bed

I nuzzle in
I notice exceptional
softness against me

I imagine the deer is a mutant with sharp teeth and ram horns and a snake tounge and lions feet and the tail of a monkey

but when I open
it is just a deer
and it is soft
I was so lucky
just before
scaring it off
