Two Windows

Directly in front of me
the one that stretches wall-to-wall,
really four windows latched together end-to-end,
makes it look hot outside:
sun glinting on white stucco walls
and silver ventilation covers
and short-sleeved arms that
swing and stretch on their way
to "opthalmic research laboratory"

Off to the right
the one where I look each time
I talk with those working beside me
peers into greenery:
small square of forest
glowing bright as birdsong
but hinting of shadowed secrets
sheltering branches
and a conspiracy of caterpillars.
