It’s the brown on yellow
and crazy angled backs
that make the giraffe
stand out–despite his neck

And the beaver’s
dam and family life and big wide tail
make his teeth seem
quite trivial.

Porpoise’s silly squeals and
Arching jumps amid leaping
pods disguise her genius,
girly grin

Brown saucer eyes under  black

shaggy mane, torn pocket plaids

and beat up sneakers too often camouflage

his pure heart and inner dreams.
