feeling ducky

there are those ducks again
waddling around the front yard
looking for snacks from the kids
that ride by on their bikes returning
home from a long day in school.

these Florida ducks are amongst
the ugliest you’ll ever see on the
planet; warted, disfigured, and
seemingly can’t get its colors together.

these chunky bastards taught me
a valuable lesson though, which
is often heard, but rarely followed:

don’t judge a book by its cover,
because these fuckers tasted
sorry, I had to eat eventually.

Recently moved back to the States after living 16 months in Vietnam. I write to remove the thoughts trapped in the cobwebs of my psyche before the spider envelopes me whole.
