Is it real?

Is it real?

 

my son asks

as the pandemic nears

of the bald eagle

perched on the apple tree

 

chewing the fat with our

garden Sasquatch

 

Are you real?

 

              Are you?

 

from the kitchen window

they’re both real enough—

 

Scavenger mascot of the land

of the free

 

          Simian nomad out by the

          woodshed

 

they whisper together

comparing notes

 

things may improve for them
