Train of Animals

Shrill sounds of one hundred some
elated children assaults the ears
with the screaming
whistle of the Zoo train. It creaks
creeping on the tracks. En route
over the ruins of Erie’s Millcreek, one can see
the backhoe marring of the earth, all the assorted
human waste on one side, while the other is
a landscaped replica of a habitat mountain goats
might want to reside in the real life
wild—only if there
were more room away from
jeering humans—this is
an illusion of ropes and chain-
link. It excites the children
to almost touch nature, unfortunately
the grown-ups always leave
their marks with bars and rules.
