Porque dou comida aos pássaros: um poema / “Why I feed the birds” by Richard Vargas

“Why I feed the birds” by Richard Vargas

i saw my grandmother hold out
her hand cupping a small offering...
of seed to one of the wild sparrows
that frequented the bird bath she
filled with fresh water every day

she stood still
maybe stopped breathing
while the sparrow looked
at her, then the seed
then back as if he was
judging her character
he jumped into her hand
began to eat
she smiled
a woman holding
a small god.
