She has this way

She has this way
of catching birds

with a glance out
of mid-air and how

they coo
in her hands

then in a flutter
of sound and

a shudder
of light

disappear – she
is always leaving me

shipwrecks and
constellations

strewn on the living
room floor like she

doesn’t have a care
in the world
