Borrowed Bio
Ange Mlinko
 
 
Where we'd recently lain,
 exchanging a kiss,
 stork consorted1 with crane, 
            limpkin with ibis.
 
Was this as much wedding
 as there would ever be,
 the fowls2' foot-webbing,
            the identificatory
 
ring around a throat?
 Exchange of earth and air:
 not a vow3 but a vote
            of confidence a feather
 
might tip by a single scale ...    
 That one's a raconteur4,
 so much salt in his tale;
            this one's a countertenor,
 
lilting above the feast.
 The archon of his hectare
  -- spotted -- spotted least.
            Here's a little heckler ...    
 
penciled seagull in the margin5.
 Following line by line
 the path you took, I imagine
            no print so fine.
