a study of the things he loves ....

with an intensity
reserved
for
mathematicians and wizards;
quantity divided variety
divided
by
barometric pressure
squared by the velocity of the sun
he watches .....
day's blizzard roars beyond walls
drifts--billows
small birds fall
the sun lost behind this solid front of silver-white
branches whip, bend
quiver with weight & sharpness
he worries over shelter, seed, suet
accessible nourishment for the brave feathered ones ....
resolute fearless flyers against storms fury
he watches with an intensity
interest plus compassion
equal blindness to pressing things
human things
things with holes & human hearts
Ah! what elegant desire
you;
noble keeper of chordata aves
