Hoodwinked

 When I wear my leopard print
faux fur hat
I sense some hostility
along with
the joviality
of those I meet

Playful and fun, and
warm as toast, my head
can manage
sub-zero mornings
with a smile

Catching admiring eyes
that surprise me
entering the supermarket
and the coffee shop
I perceive more

Perhaps they see
the animal in me
conjuring images
smoking and insincere
strength and ferocity
under that
faux fur hat
