a bright red bloomed from her forehead,

panic welled up inside me

as i failed to see dance of her tail and the gleam in her eye —

she was in no pain –

just a scrape! silly human woman!

would you like me to show you the hole in the fence?

i washed her up – now that was the affront! –

a dab of ointment and off she went….

while i put fence mending on tomorrow’s to do list….
