She is making love
He rolls over-
and rewinds the tape
The plants fornicate
honeybees acting as pimps-
a gossamer sweater
it costs fifty bucks
still the barista forgets
vanilla and foam
squirrel runs away
the eagle goes without lunch-
the hunter seasons fowl
monkeys throwing poop
screams of dirty jungle fights-
we remain silent
