Picture of the Day
April 24, 2020

the older i get
the less distance
i feel between myself
and the lower branches
on life's tree (lower, that
is, if evolution is to be
believed—and why
wouldn't it be?)
but who if any is
higher or lower
in this alleged
it's a good time to be a squirrel
in volunteer park. foot traffic is
up and we find nuts strewn all
about where people have taken
to feeding the critters for kicks.
expecting handouts, they swarm
and romp in scurries and drays.
