“A PRIMAL COLLOQUY” by Joseph (USA)

                                                                                                                               

Resplendent in red,

      was he.

More modest,

      was she.

 

Wing to wing

      they stood on

the telephone wire,

      in seamless synchronization,

 

against a putty-gray sky,

      populated with

hurrying yellow

      and orange clouds,

 

thick and heavy as

      wet paint; a gusting wind

heralding the approaching

      deluge.

 

Heads, turning rapidly and

      sharply, speaking

their language of love

      and necessity,

 

while standing on the

      words, grasping at

the conversations of a different

      species;

 

both long-ago evolved    

      from a universal

common ancestor —

      as Darwin believed.

 

Enjoy.
