SILVARITO   
    A small, sparrow-like bird in the Andes,
    with a beautiful song that ends in a trill.


       
Silvarito on the windowsill, pecking
at the glass repeatedly, uselessly,

for days, for hours each day. He flees
even my shadow, but returns again.

A neighbor says hes looking for
insects in the wood. But no -- he

grips the wood frame with his feet
and hammers the glass with his beak.

Neither he nor his mate (who takes
turns with him) seem to understand

this mystery -- something you can see
through but can't enter -- like the history

of any war, or a clear, indifferent fact
that has no use for the breath-filled body.
