Elvii and Two Hummingbirds




we had never met
two hummingbirds 
on the inside of a star where
we were 6’ 3” 
each
casting our light
when we could not be sure 
either of us
existed
like the ends of a cow—the same cow—
to a cow
though we were almost endless
or like me and my great-grandson
born a Jetsons-distance away
a hummingbird
on the luminous verge 
of beginning and end
