Words of Birds


Words of Birds

Chattering near windows, sharing, searching

Silent, placing dust under wings

Secrets, the crows hawking after your narrow misses

On your new resolve, a finch flits

Dancing globes accompany the night, the whippoorwill

Insincere but unimagined


Words of Birds

Sinking like Francis, sinking into silence

Watch the sound watch the breath

Come, come back to us, come back to the forests

Abandon the concrete, abandon the chymical



Aerial messengers so distinct from terrestrials

Silent in speech, man passes oblivious

Crenellations demark his boundary beyond which

No words
