Famished

Famished bird
Wasted emerged
From its winter nest.

Did it think?

Did it rush madly
At the bright green
Half-formed bud?

Did it perch?

Did it swoop suddenly
At the bright green
Hopeful bud?

Unfamished bird
Wasted its meal
Dropped, half-eaten.

Who knows what
Half-leaf,
What
Mangled fruit
Will emerge?
