Among the warblers

"...a pinch of cactus bloom, a scent of sage,
a strong, perplexing drink: Birdsong
at the first sip. ..."

From "Sotol" by John Balaban

For an additional take on the place where the poem was found, see here.

Lovely in composition, mood, evocativeness. But I remain a Confectionary sort and have sneaked back a few times for a sniff.
