This was the title poem in my first ever poetry collection over 9 years ago!

sparrow in an airport.






it’s a kind of freedom
apparently having all you want


more than enough space
for one small sparrow


crumbs from McDonalds
controlled climate


yet you keep hitting glass
that invisible force separates


you and sky


flapping frustration


caged in a monument to flight
