WATERSLIDES IN AUXILIARY HOSPITAL WASHROOM by Daniel Thompson

 

India

The forests
are here
and the tiger carries the monkey
as if it were her child
but with more force

Baobab
flush with water
once started
the foot-long flowers
can open fully
in less than a minute

The world’s smallest primate
is no bigger than your hand

The nectar starts to flow 
Vines spiral in case their roots
shift and their lengths 
need to expand
