Early

One job is explaining to May
The taxonomy of social medias.
Try to picture a wandering albatross:
How he hefts the sun on his wings
And delivers it post haste to the morning.
Try an Osprey snatching thirty trout at once;
Try reading more of your nature book.
Have you noticed the dancing bees,
Dancing bears, dancing birds of paradise?
May, a recent five, acquiring a sense of shy,
Giggles small giggle bubbles. I smile smoke rings.
Robins on bright lawns. Cardinal in a Maple.
We’re quiet under leaves, in white light;
We almost breathe the ether of disproved forms.
She smiles, sudden, old. Warmth, a bee dance
In earth— the half-lit beacon and half-doused.
