enoughThere s a man from uebec in my heada friend to the purple martinsPurple martins are the Cadillac of swallowsAll purple martins are dying or deadBrainscans of grown purple martins suggestthese creatures feel the same levels of doubt bliss as an eight year old girl in captivityWhile driving home from the breweryone night this man from uebec heard a radio programabout purple martins the next day he set outto build them a housein his own back yard I ve never built anythinglet alone a housenot to mention a homefor somebody elseI ve never unrolled a blueprint onto a workbenchsunk a postor sent the neighbor s kid pedalling offto the store for a bag full of nailsI ve never waited ten years for a swallowNever put in aluminum floors to smooth over the waitingNever piped sugar water through colored tubesto each empty nest lined with newspaper shreddedwith strong tired handsNever dismantled the entire affair put it back together againStill no swallowsI never installed the big light that stays on through the nightto keep owls away Never installed lesser lightsnever rested on Sundaywith a beer on the deck surveyingwhat I had done what yet remained to be done listening to Styxwhile the neighbor kids ran through my sprinklersI have never collapsed in abandonNever prayedBut enough about purple martins As we speak Esperanto is being corruptedby upset languages such as
