And The Corpse Survived…

And The Corpse Survived…

When birds take flight
carrying with them
an undigested injestion
of homo sapiens
even dead brows
crumble in worry…

Over one calender ago
a bird died upon a tree in Iju Isaga
breaking 153 unhatched eggs of destiny
and others nesting in the tree

and now,
for funeral’s sake
another bird has died
but only the dead it carried survived
