Bird Voice In The Halls Of 5 A.M.

theebro    eebro                            eebro

In the mild dark
the radiator is with difficulty white.

eebaw               eebaw

The syllables vary like a signature.

kohl           kohl          kohl

A new voice tries
the uvular, diphthong
of its particularity.
Fricative, apocope, an insectic click
join the tuning symphony. 

Again the chance
to go forth on the soft lawn,
to take, like my sprinkler,
differing angles to the ground,

to the    Aw               Aw
of a bitumen crow in hemlock
give jambo, the greeting in Swahili,

to each      each   chip chik                             epeleeklaw

                                                    chaw
