I am a master of camouflage.
Blink and I’ll have vanished.
My stripy suit may make you think
that I have been banished
from the savanna to some jail,
but I’m still standing here.
Can you see me blending so well?
“Poof,” and I disappear.

Baby owl in a tree
you may lack your elders’ sagacity,
but for cuteness, they ain’t got nothing on you —

Surely, I have misunderstood,
“Put my head where, you say?”
“But I have bones, don’t you know?”
“I wish I could obey.”
“Now, you say, my feet are too wide?”
“Really, what the heck!”
“You said put my head ‘tween my feet,
have you seen my frickin’ neck?”
“I wasn’t built to stand on my head!”
“What do you mean, ‘We’ll see?'”
“I’m not sure that you’re acquainted
with a thing called gravity.”

look down from a high branch;
one throws a pit;
a tourist dodges left,
right into the pit’s path
a goose struts,
then wheels about – wings flaring –
but standing on both legs —
feint with foot, jab with beak
spits in some poor girl’s face
as if she
were Hitler or Kim Jong-Un
classy, Llama, real classy
There was a young woman from Zambia
who developed an instant phobia.
She’d suffered a trauma,
finding two Black Mamba
curled up in her corner of Zambia.
