this a.m.

cleaning frenzy downstairs the ruckus
of laundry and drowning perfume

birds dart tree to tree unable to settle
on this branch or that much less thought

but the pair of ducks on the neighbor’s roof-
peak: they stand, step closer together,

pause, step again, coyly dip their heads—
my half-cup of coffee still warm

  1. I love this, Jennifer–even though it reminds me that I need to do some cleaning. . .
    I like the line break, roof-peak. . .
    the birds, the housecleaning, the moment of returning to the coffee. . .
