I Saw a Bird by Kyle Perdue

“I saw a Bird”

 

I saw a bird

it wasn’t just any bird

it had a face

and a voice

it was translucent

it knew of life and death;

depression and suicide

at sight of me

it stopped

it was irritated

there was a small

band

around its ankle

and its pointy feet

looked odd

it began speaking

like a human

telling me

how much it liked

worms

and beetles

“always wanted

to go to Italy.”

it said.

it opened its beak

and I saw everything:

every woman

I’ve ever loved

every place

I’ve ever been

then it called me

“a fucking idiot”

and flew away
