SAN JOAQUIN VALLEY QUAIL

They learn early
to be a covey,
to stick together
and look out
for one another—

where Bobcat walks
and Hawk waits
on a bare branch,
where water is
before they die.

 

BALANCE

To the flutter and whir
of learning how to drink
water from a trough.

It’s a big world out there.
To survive, best
we learn to stick together.
