Oriole’s Brilliance

Oriole’s brilliance shines from the juniper
as singing and crooning, the orange
and gold spirit of all small lives
whips his beak back and forth along
the branches, hops limb to limb

between the flickering flames
of each liquid song, and swallows
the night blue berries. 
Eating darkness
he brings forth this day.
