canarypoem #1

my friend auditions canaries a strange job
you think well it’s a matter of sex and a bit
more pleasant than gendering chicks which
another friend used to do it seems that only
male canaries sing and male canaries market
for twenty dollars more at the canary bazaars   
so it’s worth her time (since she has twenty
some hatchlings to sell at the canary fair)
to set up her tape of canary chorus and
watch a babe closely does its little throat
swell at the music? is it even managing a
burble or two? if so it’s a boy each bird
gets three shots so annette is assured
she’s not fleecing her customers yesterday
four passed the test three were unmoved
they’ll become mamas preferably of males
