If possible let me not see any one-legged birds today. Let me step into the small but fast stream and find ebony jewelwings. Let me forget the rubble of that other life. The sound of things hitting the driveway. It's the same world, isn't that the funny part: ebony jewelwings, a crow perched on the edge of the dumpster. Where is the small, fast stream when you need it, bending the waterweeds. If possible, let there not be any one-legged birds.
