Plastic Bag Windows II

Trumbull sings

Looking birdies
dead in the eye
dead in the eye

Trumbull knows

flights of fancy
injuries of flesh
flaws of Man

Trumbull says

Fly if you might
Eyes are winged

Trumbull says

Birdies have long
finger bones beneath
their wing feathers

I’d rather pee
next to you
than on you,

says Trumbull
to James Leather,
the man in red

JL’s a flown-in birdie
from camp Dignity
He knows Trumbull’s
statement of friendship

Looking dollies
dead in the eye
dead in the eye
is a brave act
of human defiance

Trumbull says

Dollies don’t
eye to eye birdies
Dollies only scan
slick-screens with
red pointed lasers

Trumbull knows

Birdies are real
eye to eye life
Dollies are night sweat
lingering in the morning light
