a pair of bird's wings on the sidewalk


the wings

stuck to the sidewalk
in the speckling shadow of trees
gray and white feather wings stacked for flight
folded into a peak
severed joints exposed
flesh rain-washed to bone

how the wind blew this weekend
how the wind kept blowing
the corners shrieked
the bathroom fan squeaked
i spent the weekend in a low-grade mid-western panic of relentless wind
every couple minutes realizing i still heard it

the wind is blowing here, too. but I dreamt last night that I was hanging out with you and I was cuddling with a sweet gray kitty so there's that, at least.
