Small Birds

The beds wait in the alley for the trash men
Our lives have been thrown out
The small house hungers
There is no time for explanations
Our lives are charred
We flew,  sparrows
These are our liquor bottles
Our small glass coffins
There is still no explanation
The terrible mimicry
We could not manage
