Rock Dove over 6th Avenue

I’m driving down 6th Avenue toward Denver

the mountains behind me, the tall buildings ahead

to meet a pregnant mama

when rock doves dart across

the air

above me  —

so fast, all I see as I speed by

is the purple under-wing of one

open like a heart

flying before my eyes.
