Mirage

I kept ignoring what you were.
You showed me from the very first
but it was clothed in silky fur.
I kept ignoring what you were.
Your hide was bare for years before
I found it was my unquenched thirst
saw water where lay only dirt.
You showed me from the very first.

all evening we passed
a yawn back and forth
we woke to August
the sun’s angle changed
