Urban Squirrel

Squirrel inhabit trees,
regardless the location.
To them, trees are
trees--whether urban
foliage or ancient
forest. Risks and
survival tactics vary
per setting; this
rodent readily adapts.
An electric highwire
is mere passage
to food, cover.
Perhaps preferred
to scampering down
a tree trunk only
to be snared by
a stealthy fox.
