**Bird

by Alison Calder**

When I was small a bird

Flew into my eye.

At first, wings battered

heart beating the sound

a handful of pebbles

dropped from a bridge into water

I covered my face, looked away from others.

They were confused by fluttering

behind my eyes, scratching sounds.

When I cried pinfeathers smothered the sun.

 

Lately I've learned to see through wings.

My eyes become golden, my fingers

turn talon. I seek high places.

One day soon I'll climb higher than you

can imagine. I've told no one of my plan.

Only the corner of my eye can give me away.

A small fluttering thing tries to get out.
