Leaving

My hands are cold

pressed up against the glass

uncertain of my posture

even now.

 

I was born peculiar.

In my mouth

she constructed a window

that would open and shut

against my tongue.

 

One morning

a bird flew

into my throat

and I thought I might die

until he opened his wings

all sapphire and sun

and then I knew for sure.
