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.
