It's not written down, exactly, but it is the latest offering from Squid Pro Crow:
Maybe it approached gradually,
Like the three-toed sloth
In the zoo’s reptile house.
I didn’t think the mossy thing
Was real, or really coming,
Until it was nearly upon me.
Maybe it all showed up at once—
So fast I’d never have seen it,
Even if I knew where to look.
One day last summer, I blinked.
The empty feeder suddenly
Offered two hummingbirds.
Regardless of how, it happened.
I recognized her this morning
In the ladies’ room at work.
She was washing my hands.
I adjusted her tasteful earrings
And smoothed her messy braid.
