ariel

i set a playlist of animal sounds to random
and the frogs do little for her,
but the grunt of apes cause her to pause and stare
at the bare wall
strange
she keeps staring off to the right for awhile
ears forward, blind

but when the big cats come
that pair of ears split
one forward and the other backward, to a twitch
but she returns to the gentle tending of her paw, anyway
