Animals Respect
By Heidi Stephenson

Blending black and white
in perfect union

Reflecting ancient

Racoon, zebra, panda,
orca, tapir, penguin,

osprey, lemur, badger,
anteater, skunk,

united with

Californian King snake,
Siberian husky,

Dalmatian dog,
Holstein cow –

that none
should be judged

for their pigment-producing

...Nature’s own stand,
against racism.
