The World Reacts


We all make little changes
and the world reacts to us.

They ran a fence along the creek
because we kept jumping in,

the corner shop brought back those Russian sweets
to cease our everyday hounding,

and last week I gave a strawberry, large and chunky,
near the size of a tennis ball, to a local squirrel.

Today, in the same park, I found
a very, very fat squirrel.
