We were told
when they moved here
that they would wrestle.
And not to be alarmed.
So we have always enjoyed
their tangles.
They are built
for wrestling,
wrapping those long necks
around each other’s.
Sometimes when they wrestle,
they bite each other
and make cranky sounds,
and spit.
Often, their lower lips sag
afterwards,
which means they can’t eat
until the lip comes back into place.
Other than that,
there seems no harm done.
And they remain
buddies.
