Slow day into
slow night

the sun never
really did settle

on a weather pattern
and in the garden

under the hooped row
half open for venting

some cat’s paws
have punctuated

the soil this all
a song of passage

it comes from inside
this very house

in its settling

too percussive
too insistent

I went out to take
a good look

at the chimney
and startled

the flicker there
it flickered away

the feathers on
its under-wing

as pink
as any sunset
