safe from harm

i spent
a lazy afternoon
watching squirrels
treedancing.

quicknimble
treerats.
thosesilverflashes
quickentrancing.

running corkscrew
rings around ringed
trees flush
with verdant spring,

stopping only
to scratch an itch
or watch a plump
pigeon snoozing.

i wish
i was a squirrel.
tree dancing.
safe from bombsandcarsandknivesandguns.

a silver flash
in the canopy,
watching plump
pigeons snoozing.
