Jetty (I Am Home)

Jetty (I Am Home). © Chris Bronsk 2014.


Out of a bad dream’s
Smoldering ruins,
A flight of crows’
Bloodied and dripping wings

Soared high over me
This morning
Like flying scissors
Snipping at threads,

Making my puppet head
Jerk sideways,
My feet jitterbug
On the patch of ice in the yard.

—Charles Simic, from Master of Disguises (Houghton Mifflin, 2010).
