Wild Bird

09/17/2015

Do you know

one who is like

a wild bird

again and again

flying against

a pane of glass,

each time pained,

shocked, unsuspecting?

Why can’t the soaring creature

see the glass?

Why can’t the stunned one learn?

And why not look and see

there’s nothing on the other side

but a box filled with dusty things

yellowed by artificial light –

while you already are

sunlit flying free.
