Birds go Free

My cage–
I hop the wooden slats,
The others have gone.
My bars hug me, keep me safe–
Shire/Plato’s Cave.

‘Go free, free. Free. Go.’
I cannot.

Enough seed. Enough eat.
Enough house.
Enough & Satisfied.

I’m too terrified to fly.
I’m too excited not to look.

I cannot.
I’m too excited to look.
I’m too terrified not to fly.
