Flying Again

by Danny Erin


If you should
wake up
one morning
and find
a few feathers in bed
where last night
there was me –
don’t panic,
just clean up
the bird-table
in the garden,
put some fresh water on it,
with the remains from
your breakfast table
and maybe tie up
a small net bag of seeds
to the branch of a tree.

Oh
and do me a favour,
will you ?
Keep the cat in
till I master
flying again.
