napowrimo – niizhtana shi nshwaaswi (twenty eight)

evolution is cruel

all i want is a tail so that i can hang from trees

or wrap it around my young ones’ tails entwined as we sleep

i imagine that having a tail would be so much fun, the monkeys seem to enjoy it

 

if not a tail

wings at least so i could feel the wind in the higher atmosphere

and fly in formation migrating to distant lands

 

the legs i have are short keeping me close to the ground

perhaps there is something i need to learn

or understand

from the land
