going home001








As we watched
brave bird
broke the canopy
of all our songs
in the going up

and perched in the thin air
and sang out

I’m going home now

as we clung
to our safe branches

and watched the falling back
through layers
that would not catch him

and a thicket of currents
that do not lead the way

and we didn’t breathe
or sing
until he caught
in the final pull
and slowed

until he was back
and we saw
