Mockingbird

Mockingbird

A scolding shriek!

About these ads

and a flash of white

on wings and tail

like a fan snapped open in my face -

you swoop

from oak to roof gutter,

magnolia to garage,

weaving with frantic crisscrossed plunges

About these ads

a screen for your young

in the lilac bush.
