Those are birds on the wing
You follow

Taking the high arc
Leaving
Red rust, rutted and a slow road

You knew my door was always open
And some cup or other
Laid over a cuss
At the kitchen table

They pulled a grey blanket about you
And made you sleep longer
Than the light in your eyes could fathom
