Skeleton Birds

Turn me upside down and shake me out.

I need to know if what’s rattling inside me is a bird

or the skeleton of a bird,

I need to know if I’m a cage or a coffin.

  1. I loved the imagery and the atmosphere of this. As for the coffin or the cage, I can’t decide which might be the worse thing to be. Bleak, yet all the more beautiful for it, thank you for this.

  2. it’s your heart!
    your heart!
    your heart is
    a bird made out of bones
    let it out let it go
    before it bangs itself
    to pieces
    it is alive
    it is free
    it only needs telling
    the telling of its tale!
    the telling of its tail!

Thoughts? I love those.
