birthday week

Tell me this:
Why are the birds here so wise?
Tell me about the lichen that climbs
The grey fence – is there anything more humble?
When did food begin losing its flavor
And when did traffic become so terrifying?
Start slowly and use a calm voice,
For I have never seen the like.
If I seem distracted, reach over,
Squeeze my hand.
