Bird and Diamond


I would find her clothes
scattered on the floor, sometimes

perched on a chair or dresser
like a skylark, singing

of its nervous Spring love,
and I thought of Shelley and

his blithe spirit and how
she always was fielding my love

like it was a softball, popped
easily into the outfield

but carelessly dropped,
so that runs and runs and runs

scored against me
while, artfully, she laughed.
