Kerri Shying R # 376 - us species

us species

a  world
of variation  in the small
dog breathing
whistling  wavers  pops pause
slight and soft  the gruff
caught   here and there
panting anthromorphically    in chase
in love  
running from the Tour de France
he moves limbs as fragile as chicken bones
around my skull 
 I set sail
on that ocean
of air


  1. and the bones of a smaller bird set flight
    gruff bustle of an ocean under
    where nests of grief are lit to bob
    and little stars fall through the night
