lying in wait for a chance to imitatethe mellow rasp or nasal hailing call

in ruffled light behind the deadfall

and under the waning eye of Orion

the dog’s Hup our command bird on, bird on.

Late November

Out of the barn a woman came

and moments later came a man,

the length of a ladder between them–

A rung for every year

they’ve cleaned the gutter’s together.
