View, with Cardinals


 


To say, this hour teeters over a chasm


is one path to understanding.


 


To say, come May, sunlight thickens


like pulled taffy is a choice.


 


But what are the alternatives, given such


a scrap bag of fragments, figments:


 


a truck’s ignition, close


of a mailbox, step of a child upstairs.


 


Dry sounds, though the morning


smelled like every screen door


 


you ever pressed your nose to, wishing.


The cardinals keep scraping away. Find me.
