I wondered if it was
the same crane
I saw last time I was in San Jose.
Last night I was at a restaurant
Pappizani or something Italian,
Talk turned to family and before you know it
everyone whipped out their cell phones
and passed around pictures of their kids.
I’m not a photographer
But I am a talker
That’s how I got the shot of the cranes in a cornfield
one morning last week
on my way to work
stopping at the library to drop off an overdue book.Otherworldly gutteral cooing of long-throated cranes
in the field next door
hundreds of cranes
Agh, where is my camera when I need it?
Cell phone camera shots can be art.
I’m not saying mine are.Thou art art
Off with me now.
I’m in San Jose
Just popped in to say Hey.
