poor tortoise
on its back again
a seesaw in the sand
if it could it would
author its own treatise on indifference

poor bird
dead as stone in a church alley
miles from any powerline
if it could it would
pen its own manifesto on the dangers of stained glass windows

poor dog
eating downtown garbage
to him, we're all just bipedal disappointment machines
if it could it would
instruct others on how to disappear completely

some get lucky
some do not
