Migrating birds

Migrating birds
Studio on Slough Road
Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Dark birds
Flying shadows
Tree to tree
Their voices like coiling springs
Planning
Negotiating
Bonding
Stop here to cackle and flick their black tails
Dislodging the quiet yellow leaves
Dislodging the quiet of the empty house
The artists have left, have migrated on
Now the birds come
They too stop over at this wayside
to somewhere else.
