Poems about Animals

There is something broken. Cracks in the foundation. A system built upon revolving doors.  The U.S.
Dear  sister, I don't think she knows.
Remember when our minds confused the lines of right and wrong that lingered deep with you in our thoughts
Dear Daisy, To my beautiful flower, my sweet baby girl
Back in the dusky dark days in the hut Days of white and black on human screen Our voice travailed like it's night rut
Rusted, dirty kennels litter the floor Their occupants gave up after mistreat and gore.
A bright eyed cat caught up in wires. Never sees the sun Tortured with pliers. Is anyone listening
I lie in bed at night and pretend the stuffed animal is you.
The bird in me Recognizes the one inside you Somewhere in a corner ...with tattered wings ...chained legs...
Wide-eyed, glassy stare Dazed and confused Reeling, recoiling from possible  Impossibility
