Dead Bird or 13 Observations on Mortality

1. The sky looked like the clouds were stapled to it

2. Something about the wind

3. We saw three birds in the park

4. The fourth bird was in the box

5. It wasn’t raining, but it looked like it might

6. We found the box by digging into a soft spot in the earth

7. The way you collar bones poked out of your open coat

8. We thought the box was buried treasure

9. The dirt on our fingers as we dug in the earth

10. We didn’t mean to laugh

11. Something else about the wind

12. In the box was a budgie in a top hat that someone had made for the bird to wear in the grave

13. We didn’t mean to laugh
