birdless feathers

You took me home
to throw up in your garden
I left my feathers
buried in the dirt

We talked in zodiac clichés
and fell in love
with other people

Under the street-lit
speech bubbles I was free
fleetingly kindred
in the pre-dawn light

Come morning
you couldn’t remember
how I came to be
a ghost in your bed

Daylight changing
the shadowed dreams
of midnight connect-the-dots
into dust on the bedsheets
