the denisovan in me

Tonight
as I huddle
around this homo-
sapien fire
of fresh-laupered
Beech limbs
and ponder the
170,000 year-old
neanderthal
cave architects
of Aveyron,

the Tacoma idling
above me
on the ridge
my vain
attempt to recharge
a dead cell,
AM Sinatra
from Corbin
belting over this holler
of deer, whippoorwill
wood frog
and barred owl,

the denisovan
in me
thinks
maybe I got
things
all wrong.

Catbird

Today I wait
on a single word
unknown to me
that I open with
my mouth
and pass through
like a cedar bough.
Where the utterance
ends I perch
because I am
going to die but
can’t yet appreciate it.
Birds have always
understood this migration
as imperative.
Take the catbird
practicing her medicine.
The hoarse meeurrs
and cackling kedekekeks.
The deep whurfs,
all signaling life
at once glorious
on a high branch
then just gone
in a hedge.
