If you squint at that gap in the trees

Long enough, a bird’ll

Pop into view, quick as a bullet

Punching through paper.

Don’t let him startle you.

See if he hovers; if he does

Try to make out the marking,

Those imperfect red fractal

Patterns. That’s his signature.

Whatever you do, don’t move.

He’ll be gone in a moment.
