Night Birds

Night Birds

These roads are just branches
From which the night birds sing
Some of them fall
Some of them have wings

this year was a decade
these bottles are fists
this town is an anchor
& I’m always adrift

this place is a forest
its leaves have been shed
uneven ground burning
last night hangs overhead

we’re running in circles
choking on dust
our memories fading
or turning to rust

these roads are dead branches
those night birds wont sing
most of them fall
but some of them have wings
