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 – but Jeris’ short piece is perfect for it and I was able to add a little shakuhachi as well (available as a separate stem if you can use it for your project.)

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
