Peace pest

Into my view he came
Exaggerated swagger of gaiety
Enhanced by his shortness of limb
Thickness of bone
A kind brown eye
Caught mine
And in its wake, transfixed
I wandered to him
His wide nostrils
Crinkled and trembled
Then expanded
His lips curled to reveal
Stained and yellowed teeth
Painted in a smile
He shook the mane of red
Brown hair
Cocked his tail
Passed wind and swaggered away
Swinging his wide shiny hips
Snorting, his curiosity satisfied
Stopping under a tree
He stood, out of the noon day sun
Swishing his tail
Shaking his mane
At flies and other
Pests like me
Nollaigh Ni Bhreathnach
