descent of the mountain man

23 May

he was so accustomed to approaching a wild flower
with deliberate care and microscopic concern that
he took her off guard with simple talk;
about the design on the beer coaster.
it was a jockey wearing a red hat.
she hadn’t thought about pony rides for so many years;
not since way before all these years happened.
