Day 84 – I’m Not Dead

There is a little bird which has flown
full velocity through a barbed wire fence
and for months I’ve watched his
hanging broken body slowly disappear

What does it say about him that he
could not stop flying when he saw his end
and what does it say about me that I
cannot stop thinking that he’s like me
except that I’m not dead
