    Follow the black birds who have
    finished the day shift, and are moving roughly
    north and to the west

    The ravens follow women in severe suits, their
    chorus of stilletos have been picked up
    by swirling leaves

    the chirping of smaller birds sounds
    exactly like adding machines

    The women follow repentant gunmen who,
    taking parables literally, amputate their
    trigger fingers

    Follow the itch in their phantom digits
    until you come to bodhisvatta- - sitting by a
    tree with his back to you

    Approach him slowly and press your question
    against him until your dark question has
    turned white as an insistent thumb pressing
    against the doorbell of heaven
    and someone lets you in.
