Bird Has Flown

the bird on Haji Lane

fly me to the moon. gather
stars into tales of romance,

desert sands below us - our
neolithic lives waiting for excavation.

talk to me. talk back to me.
save me from those pasts that

soak the earth as your tears
of endings have forever. glance

back once, but don't allow it
a final telling of our tale.

  1. Oh one must beware of those final telling of our tales. Ravens do have quite the tales to tell too.
