Fragility, by Caitlin Green

Green leaves twitch

A pigeon loses his footing and falls

Down three branches

A bruised wing and a broken toe

He catches himself three feet above the unforgiving earth

Finds flight

 

The breeze nurses his toe

His bruised wing fights for flight

The sun heals and

Ultimately

He is all right
