An Egret’s Search for One Good Human (Episode 2)

An Egret’s Search for One Good Human

I extended my search
sure good people exist
in spite of all their news.

Learning to read taught me
that humans feed on tragedies
they cause, or don’t resist.

I am sure today’s the day
I’ll find my black swan:
a human who is good.

Here comes one
helping an old man
cross a busy road.

He keeps saying ‘No!’
She smiles and tugs
his wristwatch off.
