twenty-fifth july ~~~~~   4 comments

Page Twenty-seven


yellow bird and blue,
you, at least, I know sing true.
true to the marrow, real to the heart.
but true ticking minutes
truly tear us apart.
I chose the yellow,
he chose the blue.
I asked for his friendship,
he left. And left you,
true bird in sky-blue.
sunbird in yellow, skybird in blue:
will sun rise tomorrow
and tomorrows again
with two birds in my hands,
in my truths,
in my plans?
will the sun let us linger
in spite of his flight, in spite of her biting,
in burning spite, in flying spite,
of those would hurt us?
bird of yellow and bird of blue,
sing me the answers,
sing me true.
