We Are Monkey

Poem By J.L. Nash

monkey gone five days food in fridge
monkey go boat lovely island lap lap waves
monkey friends make fire
monkey friends cook
monkey eat

monkey sleep hot hot night
monkey try catch fish no fish play
monkey read book monkey rest
monkey listen rain listen sea
no monkey business for monkey

monkey go small boat paddle hard
monkey find sign
monkey watch monkey friend wear shoe
monkey swim big sun
monkey no sleep

monkey talk small rat
rat scared monkey rat hide
monkey play cards long night
monkey sleep little light
tired monkey

monkey eat green salad
no banana for monkey
monkey want banana
monkey drink beer
banana beer banana beer

monkey miss bed
monkey love treehouse
monkey like island lap lap waves
hot hot island think cold cold treehouse
monkey too much hair big sun

monkey meditate in dark
monkey qi bigger than moon
monkey steal starlight
monkey free swish swash wave
wind kisses monkey when monkey friends make monkey business

monkey work hard
monkey think long time
monkey struggle too much word
monkey dream peaches
monkey wake big dribble

And so you call me
now that I have given in to your
protestations, of poetry
you ring me at 2 in the morning


My boyfriend said the other night that if I hadn’t been there
he would have eaten the tin of cat food from his cupboard.
He doesn’t have a cat.
