Richard Brautigan - Deer Tracks

Beautiful, sobbing 
high-geared fucking 
and then to lie silently 
like deer tracks in the 
freshly-fallen snow beside 
the one you love. 
That's all.

This poem is particularly tender if you really stop and think how a deer hoof print has two parts that curve into towards each other; you can see two lovers curled on a bed under a white sheet if you see deer tracks in the snow. Beautiful observation, Mr. Brautigan.

This pome moved me at a time when to me, there was nothing more important then love and I was making love to the woman I believed i would spend 'forever with". That was a long time ago. I think that my place in history is in the clouds with R.B.
