Bird Watching

Even the sparrow’s song must
be bought by crumbs;
the restoration of grace,
and vanishing fear, taking on the form
of a full belly,
piping the food downward.


The neck stretches, the meal begins,
each hand of satisfaction
precedes
the infinite cruelty:
the branches voicing ruin, intestines
and shit, splattering in tune.
