Sparrow Sanity

June 2, 2008
By Nora Sternlof, New London, CT

We have sparrow sanity
our only restraints the wind and sea
with amounts of worn
melancholy
and joy and light in quanity-
unbalanced by eternity.

Now we bolt through plumes of night

possesed by vastness
not waiting for light
but living in what
we have tonight,
glimpsed with our new, madhouse sight.
