In Another Life

In another life I met you
this time you were a hairy caterpillar

gone were your long golden locks
your pool of blue eyes

those two enchanting legs
replaced by a hundred

as we passed each other
on the moist decaying forest floor

you did not recognize me
you shuffled off sideways

a precaution you need not have taken
heartbroken I boxed a leaf

I tossed twigs at the dew
and sank onto my hind legs
