Park (2)

the small waterfall
endlessly breathing out
the tiniest ducklings
marshaled by mother
along the brook

the lone
gray-haired woman
sitting in the deepest shade
scooping potato salad
from a tub
with tortilla chips

the lark
in soliloquy
and the very small blond baby
playing peek-a-boo
with his mother’s offered breast
