Birds

August sunset, Southern Arizona
 


a tattered scarecrow
puts on a new suit of clothes—
palm fronds at sunset
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
enigmatic words
splashed blood-red against the sky—
ravens know the tongue
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
a palm at sunset—
how the sparrows irritate
every thirsty frond
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
gruesome little tales
wagged by pigeon tongues at dusk—
foxes slink away

in a pool of molten light
seven spirits bathe.
