a squirrel sees a landscape
varying at multiple levels

look up to a branch
it’s there

*   *   *

would he go?
would she come?

he’s been there
before              and any good squirrel is wary

let’s be sensible

*   *   *

to be lying flat against
the opposite side of a tree

such a useful skill
he could use at the office

*   *   *

the vampire
or witch


a squirrel
and crossbones

in the exquisite
