Jeanie Tomasko


Because no matter the weather, the work of the birds
is to shine, like this morning’s five rusty gray sparrows
huddled in the overnight snow on the horn and handlebars
and along the horizon of the gleaming exhaust pipe
of the blue motorcycle that won’t start, $800 OBO, as is.

Jeanie Tomasko lives in Wisconsin with two overstuffed cats and a forthcoming dog.
