Birds always gather when day wants to begin

Walk with thin-legged spiders
for the day,
quiet so as not to wake the birds
any earlier
by slicing iceberg with a dull knife.

Deposit ends of dream shoelaces
into a paper mug in the window-
shelf by the bed.

Then shut those colored eyes
by a room emptied of light
where thin-legged spiders
can find you
but only dare to explore
before the birds.
