The Sparrow Has Trilled


into being among leaf
rot and blue trellis

south of the house, Japanese
maples in their shyest hue—

          morning takes her legs
               for a walk, hoping to ease
          a night in the soil

          from her hips, light watery
          at the windows, night snoring.

August, the garden
     a rusty tangle, our hope
for perfect plums gone.
