City of Wrens
(Sun Series #8)

Returned to Tom Maney

At the edge of the old circle of his spirit,
down past the redbuds and low gray benches,
one side of a tall cedar had been
really roughed up.

As I tugged on a soft tan ribbon of its inner bark
(so fine you could see right through it),
two circling Broad-wingeds began to pipe;
otherwise, I would’ve never seen ’em.
