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.
