Strange and Familiar

In every religion
across nations and ranges
of desert or culture
the strange and familiar
are kissing cousins
it would stop the car
brake the gaseous search
for the greener valley
if a traveler could hear
what the birds were saying
in cartoon scuffles
the aggressive species
twisting the message
in deft pecking chase
avoided by the foragers
ignored by warblers
by the cooers and the early
worm-getters proud of
bellies full of normal
alternatives to bugs
or flies or garbage
the consumers of strange
and familiar proteins
judge themselves wise
everyone in their own
valley or behind
the wheel.
