Duck Poems

By | 1 May 2020

1. Buoyancy

Ducks have, in water, a feeling that they are
Not quite all there. That’s why they keep looking down
To see if their nether parts are still of the same
Feather, that they’re still together.
I too, sometimes
Catch myself looking down to see if my feet
Are still on earth.
And so when I look up
I return where I belong, after long separation.
