Sheep or goat?

Which is it that she is today --
or is she always just a bit of both?
Some part of her that listens
shares the stage
with some ferocious beast
that longs to butt heads:
one part accepts with grace,
the other, always confrontational...
Perhaps that was the wisest thing,
to put one on your left,
the other on your right;
that your love might reconcile us
each to each and to ourselves.
