A TINGE OF EUPHORIA

Bravo, bravo! How 
bold! and intrepid! So 
brave! and even 

a little 
impetuous!—squawk clearly several

presumably anthro-
pomorphic and hulking—American 
bald eagle-sparrows

encouragingly—and directly

to our hero
and his arrow—

as they pierce through 
the fierce wind
and pass 
briskly together 

underneath the animals'
posh private hot
roost—up above 

the most
cartoony
back alley mosaics

of crazy swirling 
houndstooth-
gnarly brickwalls 

in all 
of wobbly westside Chicago—themselves the 
only things

in town—
so thick

as toseemingly 

not give a whip—
whether

or not—it's
thirty-below.
