hi high birdie sanctuary

paradise posing
photographer’s pictures painting
peak perfection

uninhabited
having the beach to ourselves
no one can build here

her will giving birds
the sands next door forever
beautiful conch shells

mile of ecstasy
no one in each other’s way
quiet roominess

birds in the trees
whispering thank-yous while egret
poses elation

(thinking they’re egret
walking like an egyptian
steve martin king tut)

thirsty bluebird swim with me

blackbird on dish
giving a piece of his mind
sounds like morse code.
`
bluebird lands on rope
takes six sips of chlorine
i say nooo each time

you have a shower
sprinklers puddles and spicket
why must you do this.
`
I’m a little Blackbird looking for a Bluebird

“Never had no happiness
no fun caress all over
east to west ”

” Blue as anyone
can be clouds all i ever
see sun forsakes ”

postliminary
bluebird sipping cement pond
can’t be the same one

born to be alive
his fat head under each time
he’s hard of tasting

same satellite dish
you are the same silly bird
loves radiation.
`
Radioactive

” the apocalypse
oh i’m radioactive
feel it in my bones ”
