two birds
a raven with a broken wing
a sparrow with a broken beak
tried to help each other fly
for a while

they nearly reached the clouds
they barely left the ground
but they felt the wind in their feathers
and the sun in their eyes for a time

they were picking up speed
and singing a song

when the sparrow crashed through a window
and the raven fell
landing on a pile of leaves
near some dogs

now all that remains of their love
is some broken glass
a black feather
and a bone

and the sound of the wind
through the trees
and the sun
in their eyes

and the sun
in their eyes
