The Whisper of Doctor Bird Wings: Poems
Department of Literature and Modern Languages
Crocus bags laden with banana and yam
rumble with excitement
as the truck heaves its way up Mount Diablo
past a giant Poinciana tree, blossoms on fire.
Reginald grips his bag and smiles,
imagining Kingston’s salty smells
as he curls his bare toes, imagining boots bigger even than his father’s
that beat him awake each morning.
