Birdman Of Alcatraz

Years hence you will blackmail me
for loving you as I spit out the vowels
you and your grappling hook of cherry and chasm
who left the gate wide open
the circus animals all carrying pencils
in an age of pens

a migratory bird come upon you
by accident forsaking sky
worshipping the ground you walk on
how could you scribble such things
upon your love-sick bird.
