Same Noises at the Window

 

Might the birds

Be back again?

Another nest to go?

I shouldn’t think so

Born in spring,

Training over summer

Wild living in the fall

(cool the blood)

Sleep in winter

 

Well, maybe they’re

No more systemic

Than we are

We think we know September

But birth happens

Anytime

Not to mention sex

That typically goes first

(though there are

other ways of having babies)

 

They are with the bees

That have their seasons, too

Their own calculations

Maybe they follow

Birds

 

So there are cycles,

And there is each day

Today I think maybe

The birds want to try again

And why not

Living, we may understand,

Is secure in birthing
