a beast in his abode

ali baba can’t abide
a beast in his abode
he can’t abide
the way they think
the way they speak
in code
.
his wife and kids,
conversely,
have a weakness
for their critters
collecting them
like postage stamps
collecting some
in litters
.
ali baba
went abroad
in abject
abdication
he bought a boat
on which he’ll float
absent of obligations
the sea will be his alibi
soon he’ll realize
some beasts fly
