polygamist trio of quacks

polygamist ducks
mallard with his two wives
float shallow to six feet

sipping pool water
swimming around outer edge
six inches apart

bathing time deep end
stopping for man chat with beer
hearing not liking

one wife jumps on deck
turning her back alcohol
ruffling feathers

all three shake shake shake
dancing without music
noisy feathers flapping

quarter hour floats
eventually three napping
wrong twisted slumber

contortionist sect
chiropractor’s dream house call
C one through seven

Ipanema man
every time he walks by
all three jump into pool

why must you get wet
just because someone walks by
you three silly geese

  1. Romance at pool’s edge –
    Bill & Cooing meet Anatra.
    Spicy Gazpacho .

    Your pieces are very inventive. I end up thinking of responses as a twist & jump with your imagery & metaphors . 🙂
