Another Warbler from Jonathan Skinner...

Dendroica magnolia

hear through you to me
nieff, schlepp, tlep, tzek
black-saddled mister
calls about Newark
and egg farms, a broad
central band white-edged
fanning of redstarts
thick streaked necklace
yellow as yellow flowers
pez witchew, o-rings
flicks tails of ox towns
in magnolia trees nets
one Alexander fluke
caribou and terns lined
with fine black rootlets
fidgety individual's
dark cheeks of Tepic's
curlies, curls of curlews
through moist spruce sings
sweeter sweeter SWEETEST
