a little of each

dusting a ram's bottom
rugged, horned creatures
scramble slopes, line up
waiting their turn
pampered, prettified
mountains watch elegantly
silently miffed

creep out from the corners
like a sprawling death grip
sun pushing clear spaces
rampant, decisive
tyre tracks share paths
separated only by time and
their desire to be alone

a man in a swan
face peeks through
behind a tubular neck
body like a tent like
you would use to keep the birds
from your strawberries
I wonder if he has any snacks?

mystical dragon lair
steam over water
lava drips and runs like
condensation down a bathroom mirror
paddles to steady
don't get too close
water molten glass, the blue
of an old-fashioned action movie set

Yep 'silently miffed' is excellent. I also like the tyre tracks' desire to be alone.
