The Grand Canyon is hard. Bumble is soft.
The layers of the Grand Canyon are made of
rock and mostly horizontal. Bumble’s layers
are creamy fur, and they wave and curl.
The Grand Canyon is vast, Bumble small.
People come from all over the world
to gape at the cliffs and great gulfs of air.
When people see Bumble, they smile.
The way the Grand Canyon loves me
takes millions of years. Bumble bounds,
his eyes warm and bright. His tongue
hangs out, his head lifts up. For him
there is no time. He is wagging all over.
