I do not know which to prefer,
The beauty of inflections
Or the beauty of innuendos,
The blackbird whistling
Or just after.

~ Wallace Stevens
(From Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird)

I heard a redwing blackbird last night on Orange Street. Immediate memories of walking through fields as a kid in Ohio.
