Kerri Shying R # 304 - Gone in a flash

Gone in a flash

smart enough   to be still
a bird in the hand

worth more than the salt
you cook the damn thing with

playing dead    a virtue known
to every  thing    with beating heart

the phht  the moment of the off
 release  how bright all colour

sweet the air    for that one second 
 now do not    thunk     

into a tree 
we don’t have

one more bird
gone spare


  1. life's a flash
    and then yr ash


  2. Ah. An important poem.
    How, for me, it changes POV midpoint.
    Do you feel it's unfinished?
    I love it like this.


    1. I don't know if it's unfinished or not but I like the way there seem to be a few different threads/poems caught up in one. Another medley lol?!

  3. one spare bird
    went over the top
