The Little Bird That Was Eaten By The Hungry Cat - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

it is alright now
you feel freedom too
in such a very
short,
delicate moment
setting a little bird
free
from the hold of your
hands

it is hopping still
unable to fly and from such short distance
between you
and it
you see this hungry cat
snapping it
from the grass
taking its lifeless body
towards
the alley

you regret
you have miscalculated the
need for freedom

by analogy
you have miscalculated
you
