I met a six-legged walking stick today,
an ochre apparition on late summer
We sat and talked as the sun
chased its tail in the time-short leaves.
I asked him what he knew about
courting the Beloved.
Without hesitation or bewilderment,
this tiny Master of optical disillusion
“The eyes don’t register
what the heart can’t See.”
