POEM: "Thirty-Three And A Bird"
Thirty-Three And A Bird
I'd be amazed too if other animals couldn't do it
Why only yesterday in Oz
the chestnut-crowned babbler bird
came clean something never before
seen in animals first sign
Outside of the human
an animal can use they
use meaningless sounds
in a different way
3 months ago Rabbit Angstrom ran out to buy his wife cigarettes.
He hasn't come home yet.
Another monkey poem
that is not a game of chess
Thunder thirty-three and a bird
Even the smoke is attracted to him
It follows after he leaves the fire
Why do I bother?
