Taps

Like a thick fingered
        carpenter

serenading a 
drowsy neighborhood 

by pounding 
ten-penny nails

into hewn lumber,

the persistent
woodpecker

hammers its 
steel girded beak

into standing timber

so that its
pecklets

also might eat.

. . . j
from the Wonderments and Such collection
