SPONTANEOUS GENERATION
(5/23/17)

to find
a mockingbird
chick
cheeping
in the street

only ten
days after
discovering the corpse
of an adult

within
a few feet
of the same
location

might raise
more superstitious
heads
to the heavens

the ancients
may have read
other divinities
into such
events

I simply
stop the mower

move
the fledgling
to beneath
a neighbor's
bush

go back
to my yard
work

possibly
the parents
will find
their offspring

complete
their job

I hope
to see the result
in the sky

in the
trees
one day

not inanimate
upon the ground
in the near
future

more
of a natural selection
man

I still
remain
hopeful
