Mostly Valentine

A territorial dispute
Breaks out in leaves an argument
Of birds for trees
Crashing and rising
In loud pursuit
Or is it merely the sexual
Hirsute side of spring
Nests unsettled in the tall lean grass
Requiring a god for their protection
The peaceful and the fiery birds
Who already live in the spiritual world
Only doing what a god requires
A brief complaint of light
Mostly settled by tonight
