Ruby-throat — A Poem


“Salvia” — C.Birde, 8/17




The space,

so recently occupied,

still vibrates —

a scrap of atmosphere

stirred to warmth

by wings and pulse

beating too swift

to measure.

Stare —

cheek flush to heated air

where she speedily

unstitched the seams

of passing breeze

and slipped away,

like summer.




— C.Birde, 8/30/17
