Of a Feather

Today,
The mockingbird explained
How not to be afraid.
The hawk
Soared high
When I asked for a sign.
The egret has shown
How to stand on my own.
And I never believed I could fly.

Til I died.

    Well, that was intense. You know you can fly without dying. Just get yourself a road bicycle, and take a turn at speed. That’s what flying feels like to me.
