Warning Valentine

The sparrow’s warning
But the cat’s asleep
Here at my feet
The dog across the street
Barks at nothing authoritatively
The hummingbird loves
The hibiscus but comes
To the empty feeder
Stares at me and flees
The morning can barely resist us
I think of moving the trees
That one over there
Would look better here
And the sky too would alter
