A Poem

for Sandra Barry

Tears, clouds, tides, crumbs, birds -- 
disturbed, crossbred, simulcast --

29 June 2018

[For some years now I have been exploring the possibilities of anagram haiku.  In this one the title is a quotation from Elizabeth Bishop's poem "The Moose." So is the third line. The first line of the poem is a quotation from an unpublished piece by my senior partner in crime for this venue, Sandra Barry; hence the dedication. The second line is an anagram of the first one. -- JAB]
