Black Squirrel Poem


by Bill Yarrow


Without contrition, egregious black squirrels
inhabit upper Michigan and fracture the crystalline trees.

Without conscience, disorderly black squirrels
inhabit upper Michigan and scratch the ingenuous sky.

Without remorse, pedantic black squirrels
inhabit upper Michigan and spill the upper boulders in the sun.

Without shame, incendiary black squirrels
inhabit upper Michigan and append the tenebrous dusk.

Without thinking, outré black squirrels
inhabit upper Michigan and petrify the involute world.

Without regret, audacious black squirrels
inhabit upper Michigan and unionize the local rodentia.
