all geese are sad

 

don’t make generalizations about geese. you don't

speak goose. you can’t solve goose problems.

 

eventually the lone gander honking panicked

circles through a murky sky falls silent. refuses

 

to crack the night with calls for his missing

wedge. this goose is not ok. can't you see this

 

goose was born broken. you want so much to

help. i see you. aching to shoot it down

 

so you can nurse it better. but geese don't need you.

you can't save them. don't try. you can only watch

 

from the ground as they live a life apart. both of you

desperate. both of you halved. naked feathered ghosts.

 

               hollow as bone.
