CHEAP TRICKS

Silence all! And if
you please—stand 
back folks! and make 

little 
rarefied
space

for the crazy-
wise rambling 
and fantastical liturgy

of one little divinely-
inspired 
Merlin of a bird—

who's perched tough 
and whistling
feverishly, conjuring- 

up bits of those
sweet shoots
of the good white stuff! 

(the kind 
all your best warmweather
concoctions require!)—out

from somewhere 
just underneath himself
on the brambly magnolia bush

(the one that he alone!
appears 
to sit so 

completely 
on top of)—
without even

so much
as
consulting the missal book!
