A Poem For You (Yes, You) Volume I

Maybe today you could really use a poem. So, I've picked one out for you (yes, you) by Rebecca Lindenberg. (Also, I love that sculpture- see above.) 

Man vs. Woman

The woman lies on her back 
as women sometimes do.

The man tried to speak to the bird
in its language
but the bird hears

a slight human accent
and takes to the branches

The woman imagines herself falling 
into the sky

while the man falls slowly
into himself

quiet and wanting and afraid.
