He's a wild dog
in love with a stone
smooth cat.

She's tender
as bricks, open
as a wall.

She's so cool, even
free-falling leaves
freeze around her.

She pays polite hellos
(and rude cat calls)
no attention at all.

Still, the dog dreams
of an autumn breeze
ruffling her fur...

Moving her to soften and turn
to pour herself toward him
with a rumbling purr…
