  • My approach startled the flock.
    Birds rose in unity, then scattered.
    I ran after them, to the amusement of the cows.
    The moment had already passed, but I insisted.

    Show me, again, that aerial notation; it has to have meant something.
    The world I came from is a memory.

    When I retuned to my car it was the future that I was driving towards.
    But first there is a long road ahead.
    And then spring will surely follow.
