POEM: Avian Game Theory

a murder of crows harasses a hawk,

out to steal the meal that wriggles in its talons.

the hawk giving its all to fighting crow will lose its squirming prey.

no crow is match for a hawk,

but no hawk is match for the murder,

and so all birds go hungry.

Urban Wildlife Haiku

crowded skies,
circling raptors weave
invisible baskets.



little chipmunk,
screeching relentlessly,
stop! all are warned.



rat slinks away
as cat creeps near,
despite edge in size.




popsicle monkey,
crowd coos, “Cute copy-cat,”
idly stuffing faces.



Mumbai leopards?
Hollywood mountain lions?
cats seeking parts?
