A Poem: Frogs and Squirrels 

If a frog and a squirrel
met while walking their dogs
in the park
in autumn
with the light going through
sideways trees and dinner
crock-potting at home,
I think he’d pick her up.

The dogs share a bone in
the kitchen, pretend this is
everyday. The frog
and squirrel move
to the couch the same
way: hop pause hop pause.
In front of the fire,
Frog tries to remove
Squirrel’s fur coat—
laughs and imagines
kissing such a small mouth.
