One Poem by Felix Purat

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.

Menagerie Falls

Those who walk past
Menagerie Falls
Where the red mill creaks
And the wet birds cheep
Where the black wolf slinks
And the lanky lynx drinks
And a whole new Noah’s arc
Of species tumble forth
From the cascade of froth
Alpine or Apennine
Urban vs. pristine
Charcoal and gangrene
Merge and mate
Mammalian memes
Fluctuate online
They flash past my green eyes
Shade after shade
Convincing the hotties
Under Sagittarius
Who seek to pull arrows
Unveil gastric juices
From punctured stomachs
Strolling to the bathroom
As Tom Ze fills the room
With triassictropicalia
So goes the flow of the polyglots
May their languages flow strong.
