she stood and watched the flamingo
entranced by how its
knees bent backwards
why did the flamingo not collapse
like a deck of cards
under its own weight
looking at her knees
she tried to bend them backwards
like a flamingos
and looked through
her own legs
a flamingos knees are hidden
the zookeeper told her
dropping her skirt over her knees
she saw only her ankles
now she felt like a flamingo
