Animal Sightings

How the dogs live

Come and go as they please

Bats circle in one window and out the other

A strange pile of dust stuff gathers in my middle of my balcony

Geckos on the ceiling

On the walls

Nibble on spiders that crawl over the window lip

The fat rat I can’t bother to trap

Its babies nestled in my dresser drawer

Standoff between the stunted lizard and the praying mantis

Chameleon caught by a cat

Resting on its shoulder for hours

The untraceable being that never stops howling

Bound monkeys harvest coconuts

Dragonflies dance like a school of fish in the trees

An impossible baby sloth crosses the night road

Layered with the corpses of a million mosquitos

And fleas
