Everything is more these days
thank god the sky is staying

blue
now perforated

by baby jays learning how
to jay the world

a cacophony of birds
a shadow

in the underbrush
apostrophated

bark
towhee nuthatch

I don’t miss much
and there are starlings

gone to rob a nest
everything is more

these days
the less

is so much
less

  1. Hmm, this is lovely. The choppy perforation of the lines is perfect, the inclusion of the word itself a clue – and indeed the other grammatical hints (eg. apostrophe). I particularly admire the ending, it’s like someone haphazardly tripping down steps, a few at a time.
