okatie and freedom roads
cloud suck and brain hail. weather event
knocks one thousand birds dead up east.
here ferny cane, purple orchid flowers &
tupelo trees entertain just the species
i am after. small green lizards bound up
pine tracts like Lassie, dutiful. a mockingbird
improvises something beautiful. prickly pear
really sticks it to me, and what might have
been a reddish egret is out of range
when i yank the sucker out.
a brown and tan female barely hides
in a tulip poplar. i wait for her man to arrive.
its been a grosbeak kind of week in the thorn
brush of Georgias color coded keys.
