City birds
Fly in small bunches
On Sunday mornings
As if they knew
What happened
The night before.






First place

About seven

Tablespoons of words

 In a gallon jar


Cover the words

With liquid ideas

And let soak over night


The following morning

Pour off the old ideas

And rinse

The words with fresh thoughts

Tilt the jar upside down

In a corner

And let it drain


Continue rinsing daily

Until a poem forms


Last, place the poem

In the sunlight

So it can take on

The color of life.
