day 1 - the current black bird in my family is me. my fall is so elegant, people forget i'm still in pain.

(1.) when the black bird falls

i don't remember

i don't remember when i became the black bird

i don't remember when i became the black bird of my white-flock family

i don't remember when i became the black bird of my white-flock family who always flew into the sun

ambitiously.

they so kindly call it,

when my feathers rustle,

when my feathers rustle, leaving ugly marks on the pavement

when my feathers rustle, leaving ugly marks on the pavement while trying to fly from the overwhelming sun

"falling off the face of the earth."

i think of it more as:

"falling 𝘰𝘯𝘵𝘰 the face of the earth,"

for people see my poisoned feathers

and look the other way.

when a black bird falls,

when a black bird falls, the sky looks clearer from relief,

when a black bird falls, the sky looks clearer from relief, as if it no longer has to worry

when a black bird falls, the sky looks clearer from relief, as if it no longer has to worry about the blackhead on its nose.

but sometimes,

but sometimes, the fall looks so elegant

they forget we're slowly dying.
