Decadence Duck

I only came to feed the mallards

on the murky autumn pond

to hear the vested rooks in sermon

in the lick of rain drops’ tongues

But wait.

Who’s that gentleman gliding? Its feathers

Blushing, flashing Venetian

Pomp, a damson wig that

hangs, thick and plump

This is all too much

It shows its porcelain eye mask, a flash of rump

Look

I only came to feed the mallards

And now I’m drunk on the sight of a decadent duck.
