Mocking Bird

Gray dresses the sky
Outside the living room window
A car alarm rips open
The early morning hours
Then goes silent
It’s sputtering leaving room
For the mocking birds
Who now out of mating season
Cease their back flips
And take up the call
Of a cell phone
Ringing but never answered
Lacking even the wisdom
The car alarms have
To turn off when it is clear
No one is paying
Any attention.
