Somewhere in a warm nest

image

A window pops out of the sky
Wings beat and bleed
In a flurry of liberated down

Dry specks of blood crack and fall
Floating down like feathers
Inside Winter’s slow motion

Somewhere in a warm nest
A tiny bird dreams of the day
The time
The sky closed up without warning
She flaps her wings involuntarily
Her mate covers her head with his neck
They close their little black eyes
inĀ  synchronicity

Intangibles unfettered

I leave the windows open
who knows what goes out
Shivering into the autumn air
Searching for something greener, warmer,colder,calmer, crazier
A place where windows stay locked
And the lonely sounds of planes and distant truck brakes pass by unconsidered

I leave the windows open
Sometimes the rain gets in
