Raccoon

Raccoon steps tentatively
out from the
city-bound bit of forest
Raccoon sniffs
Raccoon slowly shifts Raccoon’s
eyes right & left.
Another foot
and Raccoon sees me

slowly going up the hill
on my bike

left paw curled in mid air
frozen and questioning.
Raccoon doesn’t know
I’m harmless but

as I ride by
my doubts are enough
to make me see

Raccoon’s way.

PS: If you remember my encounter with the skunk this was almost in the same spot, there couldn’t be more than 10 metres difference.
