Canada geese strut and honk, beaking
spring grass; forsake servility to instinct
to migrate north, then south like tourists
bound to perpetual reservations, the act,
not the attractive vacation destinations.
Maybe they look past the sprouting trees;
wish to think of tree and goose cycles of
life; or consider implications of species;
or stop ceaseless confusion in humid fog.
My own sense of direction can be fallible
during circumlocution in grey winter mist.
