Meg’s back legs (early March 2014)

early March 2014


we have been seeing these back legs for more than thirteen years now

in their first incarnation
miniature perfection, loose-limbed
able to go straight out behind her

gaining strength each day
claws like tiny needles
fur endearingly soft and sweet-smelling

and making us glad

and now they are losing strength each day
they are bowed and muscle-withered
and old and wet

and making us sad
