Sparrow in the cypress

Memory is a sparrow
in the cypress

when burial
is done,

there to hear,
here once gone.

“What is it with you and these sparrows?
All of these poems about sparrows!
Isn’t that a little bit odd?”

Well, actually, I replied, I believe that all sparrows
have authority to speak for God.

If you don’t see God in the sparrows
then you haven’t heard God at all.
