What is a Squirrel?

A squirrel is a living sine wave

arcing from telephone pole to telephone pole.

It is a wavelet racing across the rising swell of highway,

crest and trough just the same; an eye

winking in the sun or headlights-

just a pebble in the surf.

Like the curve a dogged mathematician draws

filling page after page, searching

with the line into the dark

and after the light;

a squirrel is a timorous, shivering

waver that is

ever pursuing onward.
