Egret, meet Heron

by the lip of the lake
near the Walmart I shop
for money’s sake.

You, take your time, Egret.
You, slowly reflect, Heron.

Only, keep wading deeper,
Egret, until the thought of
kissing Heron enters your
feathered mind—

        but just enters—

remember, Egret, you never
kiss the same bird twice.
