  1. Global Warning

    And God said to them, "Be fruitful, and multiply,
    and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion..."
    Genesis 1:28
    (So they did.)

    Feeders filled with seed stay full
    as weeks of February pass.
    There's been so little snow that
    finches find the thistles standing
    high in fence rows, out beyond
    the city boundary, and chickadees
    are glad to hackle pine cones
    or pick nutlets from the alders
    growing out of naked stones.

    Now are left to comfort us,
    and only once each winter week,
    a myriad fleet of carrion crows
    escorting trash collectors.
    We have assumed dominion.
    We devise our own extinction
    while the singing birds survive
    and thrive. We need them back
    to animate our bitumen and brick.
