Words in Motion 2014- Feature Poem of the Day for National Poetry Month

The One-Legged Goose

poised like a ballerina
daintily crops around
its single mudguard foot

hops aside briefly
when a two-legged goose curses,
then hops back, head down
still munching.

the one-legged goose knows
what the two-legged geese will never know:
that grass still tastes the same
on one leg or two
that when the worst happens
you keep your head down
you learn to hop
you keep munching.
