My Blue Hen by Ann Gray I sing to my blue hen. I fold her wings against my body. The fox has had her lover, stealing through the rough grass, the washed sky. I tell her, I am the blue heron the hyacinth macaw. We have a whispered conversation in French. I tell her the horse, the ox, the lion, are all in the stars at different times in our lives. I tell her there are things even the sea can’t do, like come in when it’s going out. I tell her my heart is a kayak on wild water, a coffin, and a ship in full sail. I tell her there is no present time, an entire field of dandelions will give her a thousand different answers. I tell her a dog can be a lighthouse, a zebra finch can dream its song, vibrate its throat while sleeping. I tell her how the Mayan midwife sings each child into its own safe song. Tonight, the moon holds back the dark. I snag my hair on the plum trees. I tell her I could’ve been a tree, if you’d held me here long enough. I stroke her neck. She makes a bubbling sound, her song of eggs and feathers. I tell her you were a high note, a summer lightning storm of man.
