Untitled (Stag Elk)
by Dirk Michener

Stag elk likes
Pretty waterfall
And drinks with big tongue

Waterbird collects
River oil
On beak and feet
Reaches with neck
To get minnows



Rotten card table
Covered with red ivy
Between two trees

Stag elk looks
At card table
For hours with
No thoughts

Waterbird lands on
Stag elk horn
Looks at card table
Along with stag elk
For hours with
No thoughts

Waterbird flies
To pretty waterfall
For drinking

Reaches with neck
To get minnows
Flies to top of
Large rock

Stag elk eats red
Ivy off card table
Exposes metal legs
And rotted out top

Returns to pretty
Waterfall and
Drinks with
Big tongue

Waterbird watches
Stag elk drink
From pretty waterfall with
No thoughts
