It was as if
he didn't exist
wholly
without color or shape.

Present
and Past lost along the way
as he watched in a distant window
the canary in a cage.

He felt himself leap from side to side.

He became the bird,
and more than the bird.
He became more than the bird
because he understood.

Understood,
without word,
more than the bird itself,
what it wanted

more than food,
than water,

more than sun
warm
on the yellow feathers
of its wing.
