An Egret’s Search for One Good Human (Episode 3)

An Egret’s Search for One Good Human

Humming birds and bees
have gone missing.
‘OK,’ people say.

‘We’ll make plastic flowers.’
Even egrets know
this is crazy.

A dolphin nears
the shore enough
that I can ask her

has she met
or heard of
one good human

‘Nature is the polluter,
their Reagan said,’
the dolphin snorted.

‘I swam through ugly miles
of human-made plastic,
starved and scared to fish

knowing that fish fill
themselves with plastic tossed
by your good humans.’
