One Wing

M. E. Csamer
From:   Light is what we live in. Artful Codger Press, 2005.


One wing on the sidewalk
the bird's body eaten or decayed;

one wing, in sunlight
feathers dappled gray & brown;

one wing curved for lift-off
as if containing still

power to rise beyond the body's end
find above, a lonely solace.
