A Page Ever Coming
We likes to write about birds.
Semipalmated Sandpipers, Bonaparte’s Gulls, & Pacific Loons.
We gives them names and the names of We reflect
various sexual positionings:
The Snowy Plover, the Common Moorhen, and the Pomarine Jaeger Dark Morph.
America’s anxiety of influence in bird culture:
The Virginia Rail, Forster’s Tern, and the Lesser Yellowlegs.
We: Western Kingbirds, Bohemian Waxwings, & Golden-crowned Kinglets.
In America We likes to write about wee birds
In America We likes to write about atmosphere
birds lint atmosphere
Wilson’s Spine Abert’s Towhee Whip-poor-will
We moves slowly like the Asian Giant River turtles
or in We’s pockets, at the gift shop,
with all the birds eating the lint eating the atmosphere
In America We puts birds into We’s poems
Like We’s sugar stuck to the spoon like We’s own ashes
Made of said spoon and spun in said sugar.
Every now and then We hears of a suicide among the birds.
the Lesser Black-backed Gull the Lincoln's Sparrow the American Goldfinch
We throws lint on their feathers
We lights up the sky with We’s thumbs
We writes a poem about birds and leaves the rest to the atmosphere.
