red-blue-red, part 4

a cardinal flies in with a message
lands near the top of a small white pine
leaves a calling card
with a website
disconnected phone number
a press release announcing
a presidential run
looks left and right
by the sound
of wings flapping

a blue jay follows
singing's not his strong suit
stage left

the geese on the ohio river
have post-traumatic-stress
     bloodshot eyes

i'm not colorblind
