False Summer

Only birds sing the music of heaven in this world.
–Kobayashi Issa

each day the mundane
reclaims amazing for me

buses percolating stationary
or children racing

with undeveloped voices
in a clamor and yes

the migrant gulls
circling some rude debris

yet even the leaves
who commiserate here quietly

and hush at one another
in autumn sun

to listen for these
archangelic symphonies

recites Earth beyond
your inscrutable heavens
