The Ark

the first ones aboard
   were the raccoons

they pushed their way
      to the front of the line

raccoons

instinct drove them

well, two by two isn’t
   always
      two of a kind

yet, there they were
   acting like scavengers of a
      salvation that only
         can be found together

they laid on
   their backs in
      the belly of the ark

noticed how exposed
   . . .
   the rafters were

and together dreamed of new shores
   and of a reset to the entire world
