Bird song and Bribery.

Day’s end, silence pervasive.
Loneliness heralds itself sole survivor of all tragedies.
Exempt from rest, pinned to earth – defiled constellations.
Viscous dreams to puddles, inward prison – bird song
somber, forsaken – rarefied – scowling, inadmissible.
One still weeps, though all have perished
echo crimes of freedom, antagonized, unattainable.
This box and perch and feed – bribery, complicit in cruel death.
No melody escapes, no flutter of wings.
