The early bird prompt challenges to write a poem about a favorite bird. This is a free verse Puente as a socially isolated wild turkey during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since the third this year
my friends pranced into hiding
in the far fields of isolation.
~a place where whistling reaches not~
and I gobble from atop my tree
hoping to reassemble the flocks
into the soul of our old wilder life.
