SING!

Birds sang that day
My personal orchestra
He was beside me
Amazed
Before the sun rose
Far
Lost in farm lands
We watched the sun rise

Sing bird!
Sing!

The lead bird sang
Commanded it performed
He looked at me
Dark eyes huge

Frightened

He would not hold my hand

How did you…?
The bird stopped
He looked at me

Sing bird!
Sing!

Light spilled over
Acid shadows melting
Into the light went darkness
The taste of broken glass
Filled our mouths

The bird stopped
His eyes asked me again
And so I did command

Sing bird!
Sing!

Cows sauntered to the hay bales

Quiet

The bird sang
