ever since i read
the eyre affair
i have wanted
a pet dodo

last night i dreamt
we had a little farm
where we grew vegetables
had a pet alpaca
and two dodos
that waddled around

one had green feathers
the other lavender

they weren’t great pets
they were ours

and you looked lovely
in your floppy brimmed hat
as we plucked weeds
from the orderly rows

shearing the alpaca wool
while the dodos
sat and watched

we made love
in front of the fire
while our little farm

ever since
i read eyre affiar
i wanted
a pet dodo

now i want to have
one for me
and a green feathered one
just for you
