if one day

If one day

in a forest

I meet 

a porcupine

face to face

can be as close

as its nose

touching mine.

I hope

the porcupine and I 

will not be afraid

and both of us

will not run away

after all

it has quills,

serrated and sharp,

I have blood

to shed.

A quill 

can be a pen 

or spear

I hope I will know

the difference.
