I See a Great Jungle
by Amanda S. P.


I see a great jungle.
I see a nest of flies.
An animal, called Sun
His choice, like clockwork:
A slaughterhouse.


I see my beloved
A lord though cuckoo.
He rises with Gatsby
Never orange, he never knew.


Now I see big Sophie.
Five years on the farm
She flew.


We are never three,
never one.
