Real Birds

they didn't notice the nuns
but the party on top of the
747 made them worry

the nuns came in right
crossed and went out the
door just as she came in

two real birds studied
the stuffed caged bird
without tearing it apart

wind was not a factor
though they were flying
550 miles an hour

that's how I knew it not
a real play or party birds
only dream of singing

More Me

still more me than old
I wonder objectively
what feeling good means
at eighty-five is this it
this vague malaise
is anything wrong I need
to do something about
or is this old well-being
