Perhaps, finally, it is spring.
Some of the little birds outside have been doing these half-chirps
thinking that it would be okay for them to open their mouths
only to have the true wind, the east coast wind
shoving that sound right back in their throat.
I wonder, if at night, the shoved in wind,
does that keep them up as well?
They might not think that hard about it
being that they are birds.
