Today, I Am #2
February 8, 2017
Today, I am a broken winged sparrow,
Barreling at breakneck speed
Toward no discernible target.
Catapulted off course by a snag in my side,
Unable to breathe for even a moment
I am aching against the aerodynamics,
Destroying my already injured wing
And rapidly unraveling my perfect flight.
I am choked where most birds would sing
I am aching
Because I should have control,
And I do not.
