Birds & Angels

Birds & Angels

written by: Edward L. Canavan



boxes of dust
beneath the bed
somehow inherent
with meaning

yellowed pages
of smog checks
and tire changes
so dearly undeparted

something in the holding
and the keeping comforts us
in some way

documents and dossiers
of semblance disordered

something cracked in the way we love
something loved in the ways we crack

whatever it is
we’re positive
we’ll need it again
