Living With Squirrels


Furry little things

always seem so happy

hopping, running, preening

in the sun. Searching

perpetually for food

like fruit or berries, but

open trash will do.


Squirrels love carbs.

Sprinkle crackers or bread

on the grass and come back

in a half hour. The entire

neighborhood of birds

and squirrels are out there.

They cross territorial lines

for cornbread. I know

the feeling.
