August Song — A Poem

“Clematis Virginiana” — C.Birde, 8/18

 

Song of August…

Summer’s slow

u n s p o o l i n g –

florid and

debauched –

sung in yawns

and thunder…

Staked or trellised,

the vines

untwine and

t

u

m

b

l

e

past

their margins.

The long exhale

arrives –

measured in

the static drone

of insects.

 

 

— C.Birde, 8/18
