1. Animal

It was a lithe thing,

treading in and out of shadows

Looking, feeling like it was poured

from liquid metal

Its color and intentions

never quite solidifying or settling

Padding through the minefield

of the space between us

You hesitated to reach out

I moved forward, almost unnoticeably

The animal writhed, crouched, lept

but we let the moment slip by,

and it was left to creep through

our shadows, once again
