A Longhouse Birdhouse: THE FIELD ~

from The Field

One room, ten broken windows. No one comes

at nine, no one leaves at three.

At this school,

wild iris grows right to the door

and twenty birds, with sorrel and reeds,

return the field

to sky-blue eggs inside the eaves.

Little Differences
I don’t know that much about furnaces
So I listen to Native
Native hasn’t read a book in twenty years

So he listens to me
