About

caught / between my storm and inside windows / a blur of wings / its brownish-orange abdomen / swollen in the strong vein of sun / bobbing shadow across my floor // confused by the clear surfaces / crawling toward me / to the top of the pane / then flying down / and crawling toward the outdoors / buzzing and bumping / against the blossoms / it cannot reach // if it would only search / the edges of the glass / I say to myself / the aluminum borders / it's simple / "Look" I shout / pointing to the thin opening / at the sill
