The sky is rains starlings
in maize flecks and iridescent
ebony cascade with wings s p a n n e d and diving
from verdant rectangles, hinged on steel arms.

Signs mislead us, driving into
twilighted spring winds
feeling devoured
like fat worms after rains, flesh
and grit pierced with golden barbs, easily.
