        Poem ... May2014

 

sedge warbler meditation

sedge warbler illumination

a million spatial oddities

in one goddam thrill

 

wee brown bird

I never see

buried in willow and rush

chirruping & rattling

 

then one clear note

flying from sonic rubble

bird with art blakey

did they record together

 

the sound seems

omnidirectional

as though on

alternate speakers

 

windup warbler goes again

child's clockwork toy

ratchety wooden wheels

over ruts & gravel

 

rising imperatives

all the way up to 11

scolds  screams

soccer game on wasteground

 

the whole audio circus

referees whistle

on multiples of subsong

I can't possibly hear

 

(with apologies to

Edward Thomas & his poem

"Sedge Warblers")
