A Million Chirping Birds

This world will try to force me into a weaponless seclusion among one million chirping birds in a sky.

But I’m among the smallest of fonts and a shard of glass will do.

There are many seconds in which I am not a force heard around the world and in these streets there is a regular set of spontaneous dreams that are also unheard of unless by chance people are paying attention.

The hint of the sun on the edges of these leaves in the grass by the river I once used to call home is just the beginning of my momentum.

Gradually, as that sun rises, the invisible words that I had been meaning say appear.

Though there are a million chirping birds in the sky,

It is not necessary to repeat myself.
