earth day duck beach pool haiku

`
a woman laughing
she sounds just like a duck
highest balcony

please look to your right
pierre floating in six feet
get off of the rope

immemorial
phrase you never stop hearing
pierre loves the rope

one man lies in sun
pierre swimming by himself
earth day everyone

for thirty minutes
in the middle of the pool
owning each april

boss of all bosses
even man with hamburgers
does not disturb duck

secret service ducks
having a very hard time
wind blows bread far right

one in every crowd
although he is by himself
he loves his chlorine

temperature rises
seventy six five p m
seventy three day

duck is deep in thought
maybe writing a haiku
fast moving water

how does duck stay still
when the current is so strong
blue shining ripples

he has crossed the rope
heading straight for the ladder
sipping the chlorine

sitting on the rope
little bit ocd duck
back and forth he goes

he’s swimming around
the octagonal edges
and then duck jumps out

give him nine point nine
his happy tail is wagging
trying to dry off

remember last year
as soon as he was dry, man
walks by , jumps back in
