awful freedoms

angel syndrome's picture

september (baby bird)

fall is a nest of orange peels and sweater lint,
lined with cast-off newspaper and silly words :
"you are free, you are free, you are free."

fall is a nest of bad prescriptions and bad doctors,
sleeping zero or seventeen hours, woken by the nurse :
"you are free, you are free, you are free."

fall is a cage next to an open window,
filled with feathers and a baby bird's song :
"you are free, you are free, you are free."
