night heron

"night heron in the night
woke up this morning in a fright
my friend and i in a field, mourning
something on the wind a-borning

when the two of us are dead

of rose and word and things
and when the heron sings
the night gives way to melody -
we part, we're left alone
bereft, the breath, the tone"
