Mocking Bird

bent feathers
gray-grimed broken bird

eye turned to the sky

claw and beak
scratching dried worms
a rancid feast

and she looks to the sky

the tattoo of pain-dancing
on searing tar

and she sings “I was born for the sky”

mock freedom
flying on crushed wings
mocks the sky

mocks us all
