Wellington Zoo 32

The chimpanzees looked like they’d just woken
up, zoo opening time maybe meaning
eviction from their sleeping quarters. Too
early for socialising it was more
a time to partake of a few blades of
grass, suck the dew from them as the idea
appeared mainly to be. They were refined
enough not to harvest, then consume a drink
on the same spot, and one had taken its
beverage to the ropes and tyres. Perched upon
a platform it was nuzzling a green fist
at intervals while gazing out over
the—villainously intractable puzzle
to go with starting the day—city.
