And the Wind Sings Boo by

You know you’re in / The choicest of spots, / When, staring out the window / You feel a gaping void wheeze / Inside you. Bang, bang, bang, / Flounders a bluebird against / The plate glass. Slap, slap, / Thump, drops the sad truth / Through your bones. So there / It all is. Live Oak. Magnolia. / Mulberry bush. No one / & everything. All there.
