Oh, Bird. You, Devil.

Fire Catcher tumbles
bolt in beak
sting sung to the forest floor untamed
sudden brilliant flower explosion
apocalypse unexplained
horrors of chance
strained for sane solutions
found and paved into law
taught and learned
learned and taught
truth is an engraving carved skinward
ours, alien, vegetable and mineral
stories told
to soothe and calm and embalm
whether Noah and God and killer flood
or Lightning and Bird and killer flame
