THE BIRD


If there's a bird
Hiding in your soul
As though Bukowski
Set it free

The secret you've hidden
To die alone
Is lost and barely breathing
As you're leaving

You'd rather live
In some space without me
Let me have sleep with my dogs snoring
My sadness you'll be ignoring

The bird's all you want
In a cage inside your heart
It's tune of a western meadowlark
In the sunlight sings while almost dead at dark

The bird starves
He is thirsty
Little voice lost
You'd pay the cost

Of those bars of steel
As rain pours in vessels
Clogged by manhood
Your cat's the only good

The bird will find
Let Mo eat him up
Feathers, eyes, beak, bone
Sleeping alone

Open up your soul
As you have me do
Dead, gone, used up for play
Let the bird fly away.
