Feral Lady

“Birds” …painting by Rodrigo Enrique Luff


Feral Lady

she feeds the pigeons everyday
underneath a great oak tree
bits of bread and stale saltines

rain or shine, whatever the weather
feathered friends depend on her
she feeds the pigeons everyday

this is where she lays her head
feral as a woodland creature
underneath a great oak tree

shaded, sheltered, she’s not homeless
nature sates her deepest need
bits of bread and stale saltines
