the blue blue heron

by kdillmanjones

heron 1

Flight of the Mesozoic bird,

so majestic,

despite plastic.

We watch in awe.

Enrapture us all.

So we start the SUV

with our fast food attitude

The heron,

the blue

blue

heron,

waits.

gasps.

has the last laughs.

He roams for a thousand years

and a thousand more,

judging, nudging,

and we never listen.

* Author’s note: The Great Blue Heron is not a Mesozoic bird; it just looks a lot like a dinosaur.
