Rainbird in the Annex

Desi Di Nardo
From:   Fireweed. Spring 2001 & Poetry on the Way. Toronto Transit Commission, 2006


I make my way to MacEwen's salient red door
to catch some remnants of her
a faint scent lifting into old familiar skin
her unbendable pronounced lightness absorbed by sky
deliquescent words lost to the sun
her cordless poetry smothered by wind
I float on
forgetting why I came and
become caught in Atwood's wide-brimmed hat
I nestle in
and burrow seeds
surrounded by other flight
