Transferred – for good reasons – to an upper room

with restricted view of an upper world through dusty

glass, askew.

 

From treetops in highest relief against the sky birds

traverse, near and far too rapid to identify.

 

But starlings spiral and sink together out of sight

below to squabble over feeders on a stick tree in the

wall-bounded hollow.

 

A wagtail opposite, between-whiles, performs its

passeggiata with pirouettes upon the tiles.

 

And when a rooftop sunset cranes the neck, a long

shadow snags the eye’s periphery as old Avery

plods along beside the fallow.
