  • It is in my ledger:
    I had my life´s first encounter
    with a badger.

    To be fair,
    some questions
    hung in the air:

    What is your mood?
    Am I your food?
    Are you furious -
    or just curious?


    Lucky me: he did not seem to be furious and we both looked at each other VERY couriously

    Encounter took place today in the morning in Yellowstone National Park, Photograph by Kiki
