ducks in a row

 

Running ducks:

cute, yes,

and

awkward,

at times

 

They quack

and

follow your

voice

around the pen—

“Quack, quack, quack.”

 

They see you,

and they

come running,

teetering

on

too-short legs

 

Duck, duck, duck:

no goose

 

Such straight

posture—

a harrier’s

envy,

shoulders held

back

just so

and bill

thrust out,

eager;

now, to

work

on the gait
