Bird Watch

Working on a new collection of poems, hope to be out in 2018.  This will be in it.

Bird Watch

On the bird watch in the valley
Moving in groups
One person’s eyes are another’s

The man with the largest
Binoculars advised us to
Never bird walk alone
One person’s eyes are another’s

Interesting, I thought because
“Interesting” was the word used to
Refer to some untapped untried
Sexual activity her favorite word,

Testing
Me
Again

Sure enough, I began to see things
I never saw before as I listened
And watched, learning that
One person’s eyes are another

Voices
Beating
Wings
