Destroy

Give me just one

one moment of pure joy

wonder

pure love

just a needle’s head

a reversal of time

let it sink into my bones

that pure love

even if

it destroys me

I walked to the big aviary in the park

you could hear the noise of all those beautiful birds from miles away.

I walked right up to them

then as if they all hold just one voice

they stopped singing and were perfectly quiet.

I don’t know what they saw that so scared them

there was nobody else there but me

but they didn’t make a sound.
