He came to me
in a dusty, languid stare
and he grunted approval,
menacing and soothing
all at once.

I could not read
his expression-
it could have been both
want and hate –
but his soft thoughts
encased in hard words
melted something inside.

I am happy just to watch,
whether he moves toward or away from me,
as if he is a sun
and I am just glad
for a little warmth.
