Birds Wheel About [Free Verse]

a flock of pigeons
mills about in a lazy dance,
pecking and shifting 

then explode into 
panicked flapping,

as they wheel about,
gaining spontaneous unity, 
reaching investigation mode,

they bank heavily,
like a C-130 gunship --
a Puff the Magic Dragon --
pivoting onto a target

Lizard Limerick

An Eastern Garden Lizard prowling its garden
was interrupted by, "Hey, I beg your pardon,
but aren't you big for this park?"
"I'm afraid you've missed the mark.
I don't live here; I own all of these gardens."
