Brotherhood

by Lynne Goldsmith

No brewer’s blackbird in the lavender
but a brotherhood of cowbirds’ oratorio of feasting
on a stump with seeds and cracked corn
celebration as they raise their backs and heads,
puff out breasts, spread their tails, lift their wings,
and bow 
again     and again     and again.
