Lone bird watching,
Fighting the urge to flee.
Of pieces shattered–
Feisty shark awaits,
Tearing off verses and flesh.
Paired with burnt lungs and promises.
Tigers prancing along the flames,
Leaving embers dressed as kisses.
Of wasted colors and tomorrows,
Voiceless parakeet singing,
Body hanging like a crooked comma–aiming for defeat.
