An Animal's Marriage

A parasite lurks with flower and fruit,
Down in this gnarly cage one ties the knot
Of matrimony, as the flowers are uprooted
And the knots are untied for the divorce is allowed.

My bird is a caged bird, it fills the sky with flapping
Of wings mastered by its heart that flies and flees
Due to the masters and mistresses of the clay and salt;
Nests are uprooted and disentangled due to the wing.

My ant is a wonderful insect of the highest men who stare
At the upward, formulated area, where ants abstain and hook;
The contract is set, the natural life is obsolete, for the ants
Do not know what it is to marry the other force with such clarity.
