Orrery, with Woman and Pigeons


She stands centered in a nebula
of strewn sponge-cake crumbs, surrounded
by a nervous gray plasma of pigeons

pecking and pitting the ground.
Spine curved as a cane
of bent ash, slowly

she spins around and around.
Bobby, she sings to me,
smiling from the globe's diamond core

whose dreadful gravity pulls me in and in,
All God's children have wings, oh Lord.
All God's children have wings.
