life my cage

blue budgies two
lovely singers you

both bright eyed
your window wide

neither cat crow
wind nor snow

do sylvan dreams
on feathered wings

yet take flight
this velvet night?

in my cage
my wingless age

bound by weight
a lifetime’s freight

hand cinched ties
deep set eyes

confined by fears
a million years

my sentence long
no morning song
