Watching: before, beyond

Before farmers ploughed fields,
Before housewife denoted property,
Before aircraft plunged ablaze,
Before fireflies gleamed,

Before arachnids screamed,
Before trees learned to forget,
Before washing cars became more common
Than reaching for stars,
Before celebrities became news,

I was watching you.
Beyond the brambled rosebush,
Beyond the blue sky turned red,
Beyond the startled rabbit,
Beyond the slowly circling shark,

Beyond the hazy horizon,
Beyond the dragon or the unicorn,
Beyond the era when words created
A new and loving language,
I was watching you.

Blue, battered, barely breathing.
Red, enraged, rabid.
Green, pristine, guileless.
Yellow, jaundiced with fear.
Pink, so sweetly innocent,
Before naivetee rendered me purple,

I was watching you.
With jealousy-inspiring eyelashes,
With curved lips of moist delight,
With ears quivering to be tickled,
I was watching you
Watching me.

Watching: before, beyond
