new year’s resolutions: witness

Birdling, yellow-washed feathers air-soft and skull
so tiny I can’t discern it under my clumsy caress
& fluttering pulse,

little thing, your claws a sensation only,
your body’s slight weight already lessening
as you open your wings to flit from my hand;

your animal trust and your fragile,
momentary visitation heavy,
so heavy.
