My three-year-old niece heard the geese hissing as they stepped
delicately from the water
and asked
what are they saying?
with her beautiful fearless smile
and I caught her by the shoulders and swept her along the path
and back to safety
from those elegant and malicious beasts.

I love those children so much
it fills me up and threatens to break my ribs
right out of my chest;
I want to envelop them
I want to consume them
with love.
