the fish have shadows ,ducks have kung foo

`
bird sanctuary
butterflies and crabs run free
three crabs are swimming

thousands on the land
still running away from friends
four fish float downstream

racing fish by land
i think they’re going to win
first to the ocean

band practice cancelled
only five to six fishes
in three different groups

fish so very clear
easier seeing shadows
seagull siesta

one hour by sea
know you will not have to move
the fish still coming

middle of the stream
she rubs sunscreen on his back
before their long walk

declare and decree
couples walking everywhere
paired at two o clock

people sitting high
on the room in the middle
of two large hotels

ten thousand a night
september sand dollar lies
somewhere on the beach

quacking and kung foo
everybody was kung foo
and a big raccoon

man on the boardwalk
speaking of this to his wife
bird knows where to stand

i guarantee you
the seagull will catch a fish
before the man does

not even an inch
tadpoles zigzagging away
no destination

follow you upstream
seagull must have caught a fish
she has disappeared

bird in indoor pool
contemplating three feet deep
no life preserver
