Meeting you

we treat each other with exceeding courtesy;
we make love each time we meet

our tigers drink milk
our hawks tread the ground
our sharks have all drowned
our wolves yawn beyond the open case

our snakes have shed their lightning
our apes their flights of fancy
our cats exchange their licks, paws and lives
the bats flew out of our hair long ago

we fall silent in mid-sentence
all smiles, past help
our humans
don't know how to talk to one another

You've started taking drugs again? LOL.

Very nice comparisons (?)

I like the line about sharks. Who said relationships are like sharks, they got to keep moving or they drown. Am i close or what?

Take care girl :)
