Sometimes ya just gotta check out

and so I sit
camera in hand
and watch, wait and listen
for flutter
of blurred
wings
and winking eye
as you sip
one small drop at a time
from the feeder
just outside
kitchen window
an extension
of the place
in which I lurk in shadows
just for the brief mil a second
when you
and I
stop
stop breathing
and blink
in the direction
of the other
insistent
neither exists
and in that moment
I capture you
capturing me
and post it online for all the world to see…
