snow bird
backlit by a brick tower
broken window eyes and mouth
neither flying north nor south

police and fire and EMT
it could easily be you or me
but it does not move the snowbird

secreted away in the city
a gal on a staircase smoking
counting up her old lays

where you gonna go when you are old
and your thoughts don’t link and you do not have control

over nothing
nothing comes of nothing
at least be a questionable ruffian
or a saint with a bedpan shuffling

where you gonna go when you really go
into the breath of a million other souls
I suppose it would be fine to be a light
left on in the basement gloom
so the kids aren’t scared at night

and why do we think on this
when the snow is glowing bright

on a gray bird
drunk on a mash of berries
fermenting in an alley
and maybe that’s how your mind goes

flitter flutter flitter
and the wind is blowing litter

where you gonna go when you really go
maybe where the muscle joins the bone
or inside an ancient beast
that swims down deep alone

or the drip drip on the pavement
of a melting ice cream cone
