Hero at Lunch

K. Lorraine Graham

The sun is too—
The wind is too—

Men in the sun.
I am not in the sun
and so cannot sit and read.

Hear a bird and think “bird.”
Then, “dead bird.”
It has not been a good year for birds.

Men playing boule in the sun in suits.
Men with suitcases smoking
say “good afternoon” to
other men with suitcases.

K. Lorraine Graham
