Air Power



I watched the chick-a-dees
                         struggle
         for a perch at the
feeder
            their wings drummed their
song
                I felt compassion  
then I watched the
                         blue-jay
thwart the chick-a-dees'
                      struggle to feed
triple in size
                    double in strength
and decibels…
                    I grew older
                                        and sadder
                                                                     (1993)
