Ducks Take to Water

image borrowed from tess kincaid

Ducks Take to Water

They float
but never stray

with a certain naïveté

dry on the surface
as if they don't belong

I'd love to hold one
under the shallow

their showy
feathers mat down

until they are rat-like
as a drowned cat

I never was one
to begin with
