Duck Poems

3. Double Bill

Ducks have, in water – but only clear water
And in good light – a kind of double life.
The webs vanish, and they are doubly there
Upside down, beaks and ducks’ eyes.
Only they
When they look down can see both halves,
The webbed and the unwebbed.
A duck
Maybe thinks she has reason to hide
What she does with her feet. She must float
For no one must know she can walk on water.
