Read and listen to the poem, have you ever heard a zebra talk, from the book Lapping Water by Daniel J. Flore III.
have you ever heard a zebra talk?
she says have you ever heard a zebra
in her triumph of innocence
that dots the watermelon with green
and sculpts the tin into silver
and all I can do is fumble with the few
coins in my pocket,
wonder how I got squished between the
and exhale a breath of pale memory
about a woman again
little Shelly jumps on the park bench
then says I'm taller than you.
and though she's still a few inches
I see she is the height of an oakhttps://www.amazon.com/Lapping-Water-Dan-Flore-ebook/dp/B01MR2NO3A/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1485658389&sr=8-1&keywords=lapping+water
