Resolution

Quick as a coin toss
the decision to lie —

to make myself into
a ribbon of scarves

silken and body-warm
in the sleeve — rabbit

impossibly soft — top hat
full of surprises —

magician — mouth swarming
with honey — with hornets.

Song

The song is no more than a diagram
of longing plucked from the air,
wings stilled against a shuddering
heart, beak clutched around a final
note, perhaps one of arrival, hope,
love, a promise, or a warble of loss,
twig dropped, nest unfinished, egg
uncertain as tomorrow.
