National Zoo
Melissa Tuckey


Mother in a snit
elephant on its last set of teeth

Child in the bright light
fascinated by walkways
and bridges

Styrofoam coffee
and non-dairy creamer

doors that open and close

Children slobbering
against the fish tanks
of Amazonia

Medicine men dancing

A machine for bottled water

Concrete the color of sea
the color of stones

Melissa Tuckey is a poet, an activist involved in DC Poets Against the War, and a FPIF contributor.
