My Blue Bird

You will easily know my blue bird:

it does not peck at bark or the fruits of trees,
nor perch on rocks, nor lurk by carrion and bones -
my bird never descends from heaven.

My bird christens celestial barbarians,
turns light into writing by which
uncertainty, bone-white, dagger-cold

rampages through us…

Only a word could have climbed
so high, to the very stars,
my blue bird,

its beak – sounds, its wings – verbs.
