Asking for Directions

04 Feb
Starling. Starling. Black as night
the sun metallic on feathers bright
head flicking to the left or right
while clasping to a branch so tight

Circular eyes -- orange points of light
the clarity of a second sight
unperturbed in fight or flight
never startled by a fright

Starling. Starling. Black as tar.
prod me with your optic star
point your nose from where you are
your mimic eye -- 
like radar
