Abstract

AT A GLANCE / Beyond the front door a silhouette on a low branch squawks, then flies, as if only half-made for flight, as though something medieval fell from a lichen-stained parapet. I guess wood duck, though it is so far from steady water I can't be sure, unlike the crows who crowd the oaks nearly every morning, clearing their harsh throats; no doubt about their opaque presence. glide of vultures in summer, blackened by the sun, their raw heads cocking loudly to one side as they pass overhead; or last night, in a record It's the same with the wide-winged low April cold, as she held a flashlight and called, hearing a tear in the forest floor, an explosion of leaves and a stuttering squeal, and directing the thin beam like a baton, conducting the dark from tree to tree and through the bushes in between, searching for something to save. As if life isn't teased into death, slowly she approached the cat, calmly calling its name, her shoulder as she would a child out too late and now safe.
