Birds of a feather smoke together

by

Daniel Venter

Locked in a cage from rusted choices
Fly me from slavery
Ground me to bravery
Crown me a mad man hearing bird voices

Devour a worm, a self eating game
Seeds also filling
Southward is willing
A hummingbird burnt by a jade flame.

Feathers for flight
Feathers for ink
Feathers in residue
Feathers of stink.

Free me oh Lord, the sky is too near.
No wings are given
To soar with the hidden
Flying from winter but summer is here.

Fallen like Icarus through pleasurable haze.
Transformed to a bird
A non-synthesis world
Free me oh Lord from erroneous ways.
