Long before you notice her,
she is looking at you – always,
and for her to win a staring contest is effortless – every time.
Taking a drink is an act of vulnerability,
not unlike a woman peeing in the bush.
Oh that I could see half as well as you,
both what is on the horizon and right before my nose.
Beautiful creature, thank you for reminding me
that becoming vulnerable is as necessary for life as water.
