I can make a list of animals that can’t fly.
Do you know what we can do?
Rats can scurry through holes not big enough for fingers to sneak through.
A caterpillar waltzes its way in and out of a cocoon, opening the door for a butterfly.
Elephants, those giants wouldn’t fly if they had a thousand wings,
but man, there’s something about the sight of the giant beast,
a calm even while it strolls near the river.
Snakes can deliver enough venom in one bite
to make the blue of the sky seem pale.
I can write you a poem,
and wait till it takes effect
and you fall in love with it.
