Here's the title poem from her book:

Something About--A Winged Sonnet

Something about these little song sparrows,
their avian tongues and throaty chortles,
the buzzy twittering floundering air
just outside the steamy bedroom window.

Something about the rain, the way it clucks
its testy tongue against the glass a blur
with the setting sun’s seductive passion.
Something about these sprightly singers.

Something about the way they tuck themselves
inside their wing bars devoted to feathers.
Something about the heart here pinned inside,
the tick of it, sky so blue, nimbus moon.

Something about this perch beside the pane
to watch day nestle in a moody moonlight.
