The Birds — a meditation

that night
when the blackout
threw our neighborhood
into darkness?
We opened our windows
and shouted to each other
from across the street.
That night
I asked you
what you’re afraid of most,
and you said
“A sky
with no birds
in it.”
And then the morning came.
And then the birds.
