somewhere above a
forest, a bird drops the seed
of a poem, and it

skims the treetops, instinctively
landing where there’s enough darkness

on the landing
between
the fifth floor and the
roof, we found it –
a super blue blood

dangling
out the window,
wedged

the steps we
avert, there is
unswerving
allegiance in
every landing

the ground, the
more
you have to
disentangle
yourself

from the sky
to lessen
the pain
