Word Cage

IMG_7956A few dangerous, lovely words,
Precious, precarious, gentle birds
Have settled down and stuck
Inside my head.
I lash at them with a
Miserable little lie or two,
With a noise, a voice that
Protests against me
Chasing them away.
Either way,
It is no use.
It seems these
Words, these
Beautiful, impossible birds
Have forgotten how to
Migrate.
