Poem for Tracy McTague: To Spook the Crows






To Spook the Crows

for Tracey McTague

caught glistening
amid this blown down living: glints
of shade           birthday as a song
blush breasted  ivory morn
a million miles of home
caustic on the line
a wish     detail shifting  the paradigm
where once in faltering weep we dared
to slumber      it keeps
this lineage we scrapped 
too: beauty so startling & love
occurs somewhere
in a spectrum is it clear
to ask more questions
i want you in the you wanting
& it’s a dance maddening
bound as we are to cawing
collecting baby teeth, torn blossoms
detritus of what we fought for
against the fissures
the eye clamps    inside this beating
dark orbs catching flight
