I am beginning to doubt the existence of
Human beings, for they seem to me
Not altogether there, whereas for angels
I can safely say that they are either there
Or not there

Everyday angels
Walk Byres Road
With Wings
Folded up

Angels have no need of lips
For they kiss with their fingertips

by Basia Palka

Policies for squirrels

A squirrel scampers
along a mossy branch.
Is there a policy for running
on moss that’s wet?

Should scampering
even be allowed in such conditions?
This squirrel can’t  know
that such a policy exists.

It’s just running happily
head high, nose twitching the March air.
Not placing one paw
carefully in front of the other

cautious of criticism,
fearful of safety.
Head low, ponderously
reviewing every step of the procedure.
