The white one with the long black tail
pursued by the smaller hawkish one
rushes among the trees,
heart twittering at vibration rates,
data flicking, information filters.
Dodges with frenzy, bits
of straw dangling from beak.
You think this is
romance, in the deep green of May.
Bits of blood over gelatin,
cold black eyes.

That you captured these birds at all is amazing.
I think that the smaller bird is very upset... I think that something has happen and the long tail is at fault.
