48. I Love .... Baby Raccoons

I can still smell the watery milk 
from the bottle
when I fed 'Tiny'-
the smell of wet fur
around his little mouth,
bony little hands 
kneading the botte.

I was 5 years old.

I suppose he was the very first thing
that I got to 
very first
living, breathing,
baby something.

There are people 
who declare raccoons
to be
dirty, destructive.
I know people
who's very first reaction
is to kill them.

I think they are 
intelligent, curious, entertaining,
filled with character.

And so, SO cute -
those little masked bandits.
