Nutty Friend

She lets me feed her
from my hand
scurries down
to the homemade
wooden perch I’ve
logistically hung on
the tree.

Multiple hanging birdfeeders
all around
thistle bags hang
on hooks of black cast iron poles
stuck in the ground
a created aviary

Josette, my nutty friend
climbs down
amidst the feathered clan
on the platform of the perch
sitting on her haunches
nibbles on the corn and black oilseed
I’ve placed there for her pleasure

She sits up
taking pleasure in the seed
proudly displays
like brass buttons
her little teats
as her tail
waggles in the air
letting me know
of her contentment
and her joy
