Repeat Poem Post?

I can't remember if I posted this before.  If I have, it was awhile ago, and maybe my few readers won't recall anyway.  I rely on people's forgetfulness.  Ha!

Deer Thoughts

Am I the only silly one
(or, for that matter, the only one)
who cries at seeing a deer?

If there are others,
do they only cry
when their favorite rosebuds
or herbs or sweet potatoes
or childhood memories disappear
into the mouth of a woodland creature?

Or do they only weep
when the bullet misses the mark,
speeding by like a lifetime?
