Fish on the Wing

by Milton T. James, May 11, 08:22 PM

I saved a tiny bird today. She
could not find her way. She
fluttered against the window;
she opened her beak as I
came near.

I saved a tiny bird today. She
rode on an improvised perch
until she found herself outside,
and then she flew away.

I have been sick for ten or eleven days now. Today I made it as far as the southern-most exit in this town before I turned back to resume my sick-day routine. I am tired of being sick.

It is a struggle. You must be familiar with this: I want to go to work; I want to dig in my yard; I want to build things; I want to organize and clean.

For once, I want all of these things.

But I am sick.

Fuckers.

  1. I hate that. When I’m at work, all I want to do is work on my own projects, my yard, build something nice.

    But when I’m home, all I want to do is sit around and be lazy, and rest.
