Sparrows
Sparrows
Offer beautiful faces
Is fowl and
The liar surface faulted


Flowerhead sparrows
Undone loons in the naughty breakfast
Blue Stork fills the rate of Arthur
                                vindaloos our coffees
Cannon-eared sparrow
Combover your hair


Stars ascend to a calm creature
Add all the denouncements
Invisible scars that scatter
Or dermal scatter a hand
The salt passed onto the vices
As birddom claws at its feet


Other purple of sparrows
Mask, masked chickadees in repose
Gotta mask disrepair
             anchor admiral for a perch
I question live-a-lie nation
Where flies messes of blackbirds
