so much for eden – April 28

4.28.2018

flat calm pond, mated

swans and canadian geese

paddling near one

another

 

bufflehead ducks dabbling

around the edges

and new muskrat

buildings rise

 

calm, calming, serene.

 

two new geese

soar in beautifully o’er

the tree surround

honking their inflow

 

and the scene explodes,

pair number one

bursting across,

flailing at the water

to scream the territorial

imperative.

 

OURS. you be gone.

you leave.

 

so much for eden.

we should have known

from the coyote scat

along the path.
