Douglas McHargue
after “Frank Mason on an Evening Walk” by Suzy Hart

Frank saw one bird
he’d never seen before,
didn’t even write it down,
the black and red so real
it flew into his mind
right beside red silk
Mattie wore that night
he first unfastened
a row of buttons, twenty-five,
a universe more than one.
