Parrot’s Song

 

Watching the bird growing old inside its cage

                                                                                      inside its cage

feeding its agonizing life awaiting death

                                                                                     awaiting death

the liberation you might love inside your heart

                                                                                     inside your heart

You huddled up around the cage calling for love

                                                                                     love-calling cage

while metal rods piercing your flesh

turned rusty into veins

the tubes your life is running through

until you silently became the cage

                                                                                    the cage

you so much loved.

                                                                                   much loved

                                                                                   the cage

                                                                                   loved

                                                                                   love.
