Persistence — A Poem

“Squirrel” — C.Birde, 7/19

 

A triangulation

of squirrels

moon-white bellies

pressed

to cooling grass,

deliberates.

Slide-rule minds

consider

pergola

baffle

wind’s speed & direction.

Firctionless limbs

(five per each)

unaffected by

gravity

space

time.

A persistence

of squirrels

calculating

climbing

flying

empties the feeder

in ten minutes

flat.

 

— C.Birde, 7/19
