"dazzle gradually"

"Dazzle Gradually" 2017 poems, paintings, new art & photography--a diary, a discipline, a delight. Read over my shoulder as I post my unedited poetry ---you can see it in the raw or get my first book and see how the work evolves with new books rolling out next year.

Parkinglot Bird

Parkinglot Bird

Parkinglot bird, you sing
from your metal tree.
Parkinglot bird
mocking me.
Cat bird,
you whistle,warble and
call twelve dozen
different bird songs.
Maybe you will still
be here to sing for them
when they are
long gone.

Revised version on Sept. 20, 2010

Parkinglot Bird
Parkinglot bird, you sing
from your metal tree.

Parkinglot bird,
are you mocking me?

You old mockingbird
copycat all

twelve dozen types
of other bird calls.

I wonder if you sing loudly
or not at all?
