Winter Dreamscape with Black-capped Chickadees

A field of women
with pine cones for breasts.
Chickadees perch on them,
clinging at all angles,
sideways, upside down,
pecking for seeds.
The most disturbing thing
is how the birds
are wearing tiny knit caps,
black ones, jaunty,
never slipping, even upside down,
even with the wind rippling
through their gray feathers
and the wavy red hair
of the women who stand
in a field in the wind
with pine cones for breasts.
