Today's poem is by y madrone
Tulip is the bravest flower, I mean bird.
Pigeon is an everywhere
bird. Residing on every continent but unclaimed:
not native or belonging
to anyone, country specifically.
Considered feral, or an invasive one.
However wild or native birds
have guaranteed laws: protection.
If you're wild now but have ever been domestic
your safety's uncertain.
This must be a blanket,
as in assumption.
Pigeon remains a stateless bird.
And so are we, sort of. Tulips:
most prolific worldwide.
