Reality Check


Their wings spread wide

across the sky

that stroke the air

and spin the tides,

disperse the clouds

and wisps of smoke

and twist the trees

and choke the throat.

Seemingly enduring strong,

with brilliant raging plumage drawn,

and songs of mad, confused desire

to reach some ancient lofty spires.

But don’t be fooled.

nor feed the lie-

for though with solemn fury

they sing and cry

these birds are lame

and cannot fly.
