GRAY MONKEY MOCKS A BABY BIRD


A graying monkey cackles on a pawpaw tree
mocking a baby eagle learning to fly
under the shade of a tree shedding leaves
-
nothing — that is what the child whispers
nonsense — that is her mother's answer
as she ponders the tears of her baby's face
dabbing chubby face with wrapper ear...
in time, baby wing will mount over irokos
