When You Feel Like an Animal Looking at the People

The mirror was reflecting the light
I was, at once
disappointed and mesmerized
I was on a mission to create a collage
It was important to me
to approach the task with parameters
no squares, no frames,
the mirrors had to speak to me

The frame was maybe 22'' by 36''
It was yellow, I could tell it was old
But what struck me most
was the imagery
I think it is a marsh
but nevermind where they were
These two cranes anchored
and lived in the mirror

I look at them everyday
but still cannot say
what they are up to
I purposefully hung the piece
too high up on my wall
to investigate me
because I know the prehistoric birds
are me
