author’s note:

Written to all the birds out there.
 

WHAT ANGELS HEAR

After living among us for so long
angels have learned to lower
their expectations–

they now make allowances
for all we must endure

and so

when one of them
finds a weak bird like me
struggling to sing…

that angel still hears god.
