Animal sentinels


Prior to sleep this evening,
I watched a movie about mines.

And so I thought about canaries…

While I watched people shot and killed.

Canaries are victims too. Are they still?

In mines. Not in households, where they ‘thrive’ under tutelage of four year olds. And five years olds. And adults. And humans.
