See the three apple buzzards

across the road, I call to Izzy

but she is mad at me

so looks opposite.

It’s not every day you find those birds

I explain.

Izzy’s ears twitch. The three

buzzards rustle frizzled wings,

wind their heads from side to side

searching for mice.

Izzy likes mice

herself so

scats to my window. A Chopin etude is playing.

The buzzards preen their feathers

Izzy licks her right paw,

velvet and scratch. Her tongue

buzzes apple red.
