(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
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)
