Talking with Michelle

From: Colorado Review
Volume 40, Number 1, Spring 2013
p. 133 | 10.1353/col.2013.0020

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

Michelle sat
under the tree
in the white plastic chairs
she sat there for the air
she listened for the bee-eaters
she watched the bee-eaters
“On paper wings”

This morning I sit
under a tree
in white snow
Tufted titmice picking
around crab apples
A robin quiet, perched
White-throated sparrows
skimming the snow crust
one keeps grabbing a bit
and dropping it

Yesterday, I followed
deer tracks through the snow
Blood on the tracks, I
traced them to a pine
where a deer went to pause
and then press on
Your brown hawk eyes
pause and press on
