Treasure Island

ANJALI SINHA


*** VAIN PIGEON ***


A Pigeon preening
pinions most of the time-
Obsess with body.

Dove with clean body
pink legs, green necks perches
on Beauty Parlor

A vain dove flies from
terrace and perches on same site-
Seeks attention

    I loved this poem. It made me giggle I am not sure why because I just could picture it. So many people do this same sort of thing. They are full of vanity. Excellent piece. (Report) Reply
