poem: the view from my living room window

some people light small fires—I,
am lit.

someday i will be won and not
waiting: it is an old
refrain, told by older woman;
in the still afternoon i watch
three sparrows circle
my childhood,
the greens glowing yellow,
and i think—

there is something waiting
out there, there is
something roaring.
