Beloved Blue


A beloved blue
budgie flew
the coop
Wednesday
while cleaning.

Sweeped a hard
right
on Mockingbird
Street.

Gliding gusts of breeze …
slicing limbs of trees …
to show me
how she
can ascend bleak barriers
with greater ease
than we both dreamed
feasible.

Her blueness
melted
into the other
blueness

—while mine
congealed.
