Small Bird (a Lai)


Small Bird

without caveat
fucks off, just like that
small bird
apropos of naught
the birch tree distraught
no word
from the bird, not yet
how soon we forget

It’s time for another verse form over at dVerse, this one is called a “Lai”; learn all about it here.

    A bold Lai, tongue in cheek. I liked /apropos of naught/birch tree distraught/no word. Of course, I love it when small birds (so cocky) fuck off.

      Thanks Grace, these forms are fascinating, thanks for all the work you and the other poets at dVerse do to create these prompts/ challenges.
