thanx to liam ryan

sitting in a drafty cage
of concrete floor and iron bar
the chimp is staring back at me
i stare at him

i stretch my arm one finger crooked
and he to meet it does the same
we touch in greeting, nod hello
unable to exchange a name

but apes & humans never know
the good that all their faces show
