By Vernon Daim
BIRDS Tangled black ribbons knotting, Unknotting, in the fiery sunset sky. Crossing seasons, the route in their blood. Musical notation in mid-flight silhouettes, Melancholic songs of lamentation, Wind-teased susurration Among mountains and along rivers In countries broken and scarred. See them return once again, Wintering somewhere warm as blood, Oblivious to unfolding bloodshed, Altering borders on the map.
