Poetry Friday: The Brown Vest by Barbara Guest

May 21st, 2010 (07:22 am)

Current Mood: thirsty
Current Song: Fly by Hilary Duff

A robin's nest being towed on the sidewalk.
Somewhere, a complement to his brown vest.
He is more lively than before.
In the future we must take him away from the sidewalk
and lend him the joy he expects.
Use earth colors, they build strong nests.
He combs his throat then locks the chapel
Of the goddess in his home.

- The Brown Vest by Barbara Guest
