MURMURATION


by Mathew Paust


 



Murmur, my ass
clearly more cackle...no
not that, either...tinkle
tinkle...Yes!

A myriadation of tintinnabulation
a cacophonous eruption 
from the marshes in the south 
an interminable, chittering gush over Court House Main

Swirling into the town's winter trees
filling bone-bare branches for a moment's break
its iridescence lost in silhouette against a near-dawn sky, the teeming, treble-voices
socializing, confabulating whither to next?
