Photo Challenge & Poem: Story

Standing at his flank, in that sweet 
curve where his barrel ebbs to the 
swell of his hip, and gazing around 
the arc of his shoulders toward to his
whiskered chin, past the old joints 
and hard use. Beyond the cold winters 
and surrendered instincts, all the way 
back to his spindly legs on morning
grass, his heartbeat pulsing under
thin skin, and a curiosity to his ears, 
shiny and innocent. How long has it 
been since anything was so innocent?
