bird calls

last night
I heard you
calling to each other
and it was like the green of the leaves
and the way there are so many
or the blue of the sky
or the clouds

and because it is like these things
your calls become the world I live in
and I don’t always hear you

I slept
and dreamed
of cars and women
and when I awoke
you were still calling to each other

tho I could no longer tell
if you were calling to each other
or for loneliness or joy
or if you called to the green leaves
or the morning sky which was now white and gray
heavy and ready to drop its rain upon us all
