I first perceive the reserve in their demeanor,

Nervous like a herd of cows upon first approach.


Their emotional stance holds me at arm’s length

The alpha male always with savvy checks me.


With wary detachment, I am always rejected,

They having smelled the aroma of solitude upon me.



Beware of joining herds,

Those who join can only follow.
