Some float off on chocolate bars

 Next Poem          

Some float off on chocolate bars
and some on drink

Harmless, happy, soft of heart

This bottle may breed
a new race

no war
and let birds live

Myself, I gripped my melting container
the night I heard the wild
wet rat, muskrat
grind his frogs and mice
the other side of a thin door
in the flood.
