sparrow in an airport

I have a soft spot for this one – it was the title-poem of my first collection back in 2005. I haven’t bothered to upload before since it’s so short.


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
