I Watch and Wait

      After TU FU

Over and above rhetoric,
and the order of poetry,
there is time and the wind,
bouncing off the trees
like notes from a piccolo.
A leaf withers and dies
its slow death. A sparrow
disappears. Vines
like unstrung violin strings
hang from the trees,
and an old flannel shirt,
torn and muddied,
rots among the fallen leaves.
