A Small Menagerie

She watched a small menagerie parade by: the winged baboon, snakes, a geisha, a nest of robins balanced on the nose of a grizzly. Angels flew above them.  One sounded a trumpet; the parade fell to the ground. Her imagination was intact in her mother’s house. Her family would not paralyze her again.  Time to go downstairs and raise hell.
