[Poetry] Canadian Geese

I see geese flockin

 

pretty bricks and smooth roads

lil bunnies and chipmunks

and canadian geese flockin

on this cashless campus

 

A lot more whales in Pennsylvania

than back home

never seen martha’s vineyard

only heard through the grapevine

 

Here where All the creatures of the earth convene

to live in dialogue and learn from each other

 

And i’m still so afraid of the dark at night

 

And i’m dark in the night time

And it’s dark in the night time

Sometimes they smile, but never to comfort me. only themselves

And sometimes i smile, but only to comfort them. not myself

 

and i’m still so afraid of the dark in the night time

And they pretend but

I think the other creatures might still be afraid of me

they stick close to their flock, canadian geese
