That August
you taught me the burden
of custom—

the unbroken shoulder blade of a chicken
endlessly ignored,
the gun nonetheless resting by yourself shoulder,
the shutter of a digicam too gradual—

the best way an eye fixed can blink close and omit
a face, seize handiest the shadowy after-image
of an individual leaving, strolling away.

What occurs if I omit you?

Pronouncing good-bye to you within the driveway of my studio
in Johnson, you rested your hand on my shoulder,
stuck me in an try at sneaking away disregarded.

If handiest I used to be higher.
Infrequently I leave out.

Now, you’re the ready
between the shot—the stretch of sky
between lens and wing.

In the meantime, the geese skim the skin
of water, unaware.
Northern pintails:
slim-necked and unique of their
silhouette, their sharp tails piercing the highest of the water.

And I consider you there

as a boy, toting your gun
for your shoulder (now not but
a digicam) along with your father to seek.

If handiest I used to be higher.

Within the distance, somebody is throwing out
the decoys, settling in for early gentle,
the inaudible gaps of guys looking ahead to mod of dawn.

What occurs if I omit you?

By the point the geese drop
you’ll be long past.

After I in finding you once more,
you’ll have wings.
