Through a window, December night after rain

Through a window, December night after rain

Negative space of roof and branches
are defined by the rising moon, crow-sized

negative image of the crow’s solid eye. Just the other
day, a young pileated woodpecker stood

right where the moon is tonight, as bright,
exactly as big, cartoonish, sounding like a monkey

afraid of the moon in the leafless branches
