Song of Humans
Hear the grunting, sniffling, chatter and shriek
Down by the city and near the creek,
Rabbits lay low, birds silent and still
"Here comes bigfoot"
They shiver and stare.
Shadows cast over thick and tall:
A mother, father, a few boys too,
Sing in delight:
Trample each anthill, smother each breath.
Miles away my feet scatters the dirt
Book in hands singing ho hum ho hum
Alone on the road, unbroken peace
Sweat covered under the melon sun.
Wait! Some thing moves
A squirrel, mouse, a friend or beast?
