All the dun coloured birds
one consonant short
of shit

tossed clods against
eye blue sky

for a moment –
like me.

Darling starlings

Image result for european starling

Dozens of alarm clocks squawk
– these darling starlings –

speak sun, speak beams,
speak corn snow soon to go,

squawk sun loaded bullets
to snow below – warning squawks fired.

Light flickers behind our shut eyes,
the Greek Chorus sings: yellow beaks

speak spring, speak spring! Awake!
We are here. We are here!
