Catullus wipes his tablet, groaning about
His mistakes. His beloved, his Lesbia,
Has gotten some troublesome pet sparrow
Twittering around herself. Damn bird, who can
Be with my Lesbia where I cannot. I’ll
Make a mess of you. If only I were a
Bird. He pictures the sparrow doing many
Things with her. Vacations in Pompeii, lazy
Days in the Forum. A wild bird chirps by
His window. He throws his tablet at it stat.
