Looking straight into their eyes
yesterday morning loudly
I proclaimed I’m still holding back.

Last night, dreaming,
I nursed two young leopards
one already big enough
to fly his shimmering spots
right over the fence.

So all day I kept a watchful eye
unlike the guy last week texting
as he walked down a sidewalk
who ran smack into a bear.

This morning Jack chased
from the garden a feline
looking for all the world
like a bobcat.

They say these shy ones
are making a comeback
in this old forest.
