Scorpion-Free — a Poem

“Empty” — C.Birde, 5/20

White-footed

meets

white foot

in size seven

garden shoe.

Furred meets

furless.

Warmth to

trembling,

whiskered

warmth.

Sustained,

untrained

diaphragmatic

E” .

Instinctive —

achievement

of breath.

No scorpions

here.

All the same,

shake out

your boots.

— C.Birde, 5/20
