Application For A Driving License - Poem by Michael Ondaatje

Two birds loved
in a flurry of red feathers
like a burst cottonball,
continuing while I drove over them.
I am a good driver, nothing shocks me.

    the pigeons make love in their abode
    acute love within fair heart
    I am hearing the sound of embracing
    and a python on a slow coach
    as if thunder- I am on the bed of hospital
