Trio of haikus on the Field Museum

Written back when we took a field trip to the Field Museum and contemplated the line between man and nature.

 

Jars, clothes, and bottles

And flotsam that built us up

What makes up nature?

 

Plants from long ago

Preserved in plastic packets

But some mislabeled

 

Little birds on their backs

As a sign of our respect

Or just for study?
