because you brought home

because you brought home
the starling, broken-winged or
broken-legged, and nursed

it back to health, there will be
other starlings, carrying hope

even chickens know

when it is just clear

when it is just clear

it is just muddy
enough, we may
see each
other in ourselves

when your heart breaks,
sooner or later they will
have to call off the
mourners, put you six
feet under – as a matter
of self-preservation, there
is almost an immediate
threshold for grief
and sympathy, and it is
really up to you to
wake up and
ring the bell
when you are ready
to be dug up again
