A Shift in Song’s Pitch

in thaw of moments, ever notice
the pitch in bird’s tune shift
at least an octave,

when frozen lemon beams
hit the cheek like some
boxer’s old wool
mitts?

in the jaws of quiet moments,
ever notice the pitch in bird’s tune
lift up night’s hostage by the
belt pinchin’ his neck?

it’s the sorta song that’s
easy to respect, in spite of
fever risin’ from its
depths
