Partnership

The untamed child plays with danger
Confident, sure footed, that’s her

She knows the tigress
Won’t settle for less

She can ruffle up that coarse fur
Silver claws, black paws, don’t scare her

She writes on and on, without a pause
While Tiger lies back, examines her claws

Sometimes she gets scared, thinking of what she’s done
On other days she knows: the child and the tiger ­ they’re one.
