O ‘Possum!

O living fossil! sole marsupial possible
in northern lands, bone-picking
pocket genius, genus Didelphis,
clinging Stanislavski passel practicing
snoozes, sneezes and snarls,
clean as a cat, rabies-free, grasping
with ‘posable thumbs and talented tail,
so prehensile they hold pencils …
Oh! ‘Possums write POETRY too!


Inspired by dVerse, a hilarious Bukowski rant, and the second definition of “prehensile.
