(when i flew
towards the sparrows
they walked away)
when i (walked towards
the sparrows they
flew away)
rising in sp r  e   a    d
towards the thick
leafage of oak,
three or 4
veered off in
the opposite
direction,
but one lagged
behind all the others
sprung late from
its own equation,
so the dispersing of
them was through
space AND time,
and the 1 that lagged
stayed with me
in mind, on and on
thinking on that 1,
the marked 1
i thought
by which
(they all will be)
    divided
