the ferocity of temporary things

newborn kitten bones tiny like a finch's, powder of moth wings my cheek brushed, snowflake going, heart beating faint mouse, on creek swirls sunlight, hopeful trembling tadpole, weeping breast mother's milk, drink bee sweet nectar, fragile striped beauty cruel sting, finger trace lips you parted.
