A willingness to play

Like fish, or cats,
circling around
some unexpected addition
to their environment --
a periscope, perhaps,
or, for the cats, a paper bag --
I'm eyeing some new concept,
assessing shape
and sniffing for resilience;
diving in and rattling around.
Does it fit?
Do I?
How can I use it,
and where might danger lie?
How curious this is, I think --
so much of life and growth has roots
in our willingness to play...
