Inside your zoo-dream
children arrived
at the neighborhood zoo.

You felt like an animal
that abandoned
his lifetime cavern.

More importantly
you felt
like a child.

With Kool-Aid stained teeth
and a paper mask,
you roared like a man-eater.

You pushed your tiny fingers
through a cage
and touched a swell of fur.

You roared like the lion
before the movie.
