rara avis in aeris. lovectomy

by Luminita Suse

40 days passed since
the sublimation of the bird
requiem not required
it hasn’t really died

birds do not drown in blue
when fish want
nor do they get deplumed and love
when prophets assume

it was a difficult metamorphosis
feathers plucked off skin
and blue tumor erased in

from nipples down Milky Way
bird detached from woman
