AGILE

Agile
I was reading Michael Mc Donald’s take on Sandy Recovery from the New Yorker Magazine (Jan 7,2013):
It’s the fragile, agile networks that make a difference …
It’s the horizontal relationships like the ones we’re building that create security on the ground,
not the hierarchical institutions.

AGILE

Oliver is not yet two.
He’s fragile.
But agile.

Poppa says:
“You’re tired, Buddy.”

He reclines.
Snug
Horizontal.
Fills the step.

Sleeps now.
Climbs later.
Agile.

Wood now.
Pillow later.
Agile.

Grins
A satisfied smile.
Agile.

    I like your poem, but you have two poems here– yours and the found poem from the New Yorker. The New Yorker is a great source for found poems. Well done.
