The Ongoing Poem Series About the Spring of 2006 Continues in This Way

April 14, 2006
Last night Bill brought home

a small blue ceramic bird
to sit atop
the jade-green milk-glass cake-plate
he gave me for valentine’s day

I’d been saying a little bird
would be just the thing
to go right there
and truly it is

He got it for a dollar
at the strange civic center craft-fair
It is walnut-sized
and sort of plump
with sky-blue plumage
and a quizzical eye
