on Switzerland

fog patches the lake
fills mountain hollows
crows welcome autumn
and so many sparrows
at café tables
hopping through hedges
on window ledges
living off crumbs

last night
in the marble foyer of La Poste
a street-dirty sleeping bag
heavy with sleeper

this courteous
stable, secure
discreet nation
has many sparrows
