Messages come through most clearly when they’re pulled
as it were out of thin air like with Victoria Nuland’s bugged
F***the EU bomb.
Sweeter news cutting the winter silence
is the whistled tweedle-tweedle-tweedle or tea-kettle, tea-kettle, tea-kettle
of the Carolina Wren in my backyard,
so unexpectedly loud yet mellow and agreeable
…honest, and out there for all to hear…it makes my heart sing.
A welcome message.
