Conceptual World-Famous Topeka Zoo
With the use of newspaper articles, the source on how Topeka learns about the trouble the zoo is in, I'm seeking that collage of information over time. Article titles lack sentimentality, in so much as they are Dickinsonian in their economy of words. Even the language isn't what a typical lyrical poem would be, which can carry its own kind of sentiment. So as far as a conceptional poem, the titles blur into an understanding of how suddenly and often an animal, if not two or more, dies at the Topeka Zoo.
