While You Remain Ambiguous

At first, I saw a monkey appear
beneath your ear, and laughed
at the giraffe of you.
Wood, or bronze, a floating shape
I cannot trust – ambiguous.

At first, I saw a horse head,
then a ballerina’s foot.
A coat hook, clear enough –
maybe, but it is late
and I am still unsettled.
