Flanders

The bird
perched between the barbs
on the edge
of no man’s land
in the morning
in the mist
reduced to worms
turned to ashes
the very air a commingling of
fear and desire

The bird takes to wing

A crossing
In the morning
through an invisible sea of
fear and desire
upon which you cannot land
