Excerpt: For the birds the birds the birds // Yumiko Awae // our wings are made // of polyester, topped // with real bird-feather // icings. we don?t hurt them; // some of them spare their fluff // when they die // (says ?donor? right on their // flier?s license). our wings have // plasticine hinges, not weak // like those of Icarus. they come // with insurance - they come // with parachutes instead of // airbags. our wings are shrinkable, // in case we want to pose as // people. we can put them away // under our backbones for walking. // we can wear lights on them // at night and cover them with // sleeves under harsh sunlight. it?s // 100 washable in warm water // and the whiteness never fades. // they can fight blood stains and // repel dust. they?re waterproof // and tearproof; they work better than // handles and are lighter than hands. // under a tubal sky we fly // in a loop until we become // one solid orbit, commanding // foreshadowing clouds to // break apart, stopping the rain.
