Mice (2019)

They are small,
And furry possibly,
But so fast, I can’t know
For sure.

And they scurry
Darting, here and
There, deftly; I stand still
On the platform

As still as I can,
And slowly they closen;
Cautious, curious;
They are so small

With tiny hearts
Warm and delicate 
Like fervent rubies.
