A steady gaze plays upon the surface
of a gash of water
against the concrete gutter.
Slivers of leaves
and careless flowers
suffer in the swatch of robins egg blue.
The reflection is suddenly streaked with starlings
crossing the flat blue piece of sky.
“Free yourself this instant!”
And I join them in the stillness of freedom.
