East Pointing Possum

High persimmon limb hanging
Possum horizontal in the storm
Sharp nose pointing east
Triangular bunched heads branch out from her snug pouch
Possum babies knowing such blowing is how life will be
Wind frizzed mamma possum
Dark peace in her bosom
Withstanding wind
With strong wound tail
Her ratty progeny unafraid
Inside the possum compass
Pointing toward sunrise and roosting hens
She’ll live through raging wind
To raid.
