Back from Vertigo

We’re back from Vertigo
What a dank day, and the coffee
grinder was loud; but I’m not
unhappy. There are poems,

for example. And Hitchcock’s
black birds score the wires
above Vertigo and dot
the naked pepper trees.

Plucking dry, pink pepper
berries off the trees
in summer–remember that?

biting them.
