Meadowlark

May 24, 2012

Mean in the face. Vicious beak
made to spear living food.
Above brown, below the color
of dying leaves. Fat but not
in the appealing way
of other fat birds; rather,
to house giant lungs. And it
is for this, your wacky opera
lungwork, that you are loved—
how, from some high place,
all by yourself, you stuff
our vacant insides with sugar.
