Rain Or Shine

the vultures at the zoo
(all three of the)
Sit very quietly in their
Caged tree
And below
On the ground
Are chunks of rotten meat.
The vultures are over-full.
Our taxes have fed them

We move on to the next
A man is in there
Sitting on the ground
His own shit.
I recognize him as
Our former mailman.
His favorite expression
Had been:
“have a beautiful day.”

That day i did.
