Stephen Lewandowski: New Poem


Rocky highlands
south of here
are full of deer.
When roused at dusk
by a walker
they flee away
white tails held erect.
Long after their bodies
fade into the brush
you can follow
the flash & flare
of their tails
bounding away.

A woman who lives alone
high in sun rise and set
beside the highlands’
shady gullies and glens
can be chased but
will not be caught.
You would be a fool
to pursue her.
