Shafer 'n Donna Zoo Project #7

Monkey Coffin

Maybe ivory makes
the walls of
your monkey coffin --
she seemed to love you.

But you can’t say
for sure; you are one
dead monkey, unseeing
eyes puffed to the size
of golf balls.

It’s OK, what makes
the walls of your
monkey coffin;
their off-white
is not for you;
that material
is for the monkeys
who survived.
