trace along the lines of the stairs and watch the ascension of birds,
wings in flight, and pain descending, with my sight blurring in time,
the rhythm of the earth.
Watch the ascension of birds and follow, follow the ladder to the sky,
Jacob’s ladder falls down and we can’t put it back up.
back to the cage, the birds flock back to the power line,
breaking up the telephone signals that shrink this massive sphere.
Watch the ascension of birds and weep—

For the restfulness, peace, joy

of Simplicity.
