Head Heart

40 pounds of wild bird seed
doesn’t last long feeding
3 morning doves, 2 blue jays,
4 cardinals, couple red-winged blackbirds,
multiple grackles, 1 squirrel
and 50 to 100 juncos and sparrows
who dine daily seed swallow
below third floor window
who sing for us to come out and play
then sing again when seed gone way
song in ear
song in heart
song in head
song head start

– Smith, 4.9.2014
