The Lost Bird/The Sad Man

He watches the female turkey
in the driveway and then
slowly cross the snowy
road stopping to peck a
few times at something on
the ground and then she
moves on. Two days ago
she wandered near his
backyard pond. Yesterday,
she wandered around a
neighbor’s circular drive,
round and round she went.
She is all alone. Where is
her flock? What can he do?
He feels so sad, so helpless.
