A fly and its larvae
are working their way
up the throats of
Darwin’s male chicks
eating them from the inside
warping their song.
They should take comfort
in the porcupine whose
spikes are rounded
softened and sanded
so much so that a crowd gathers
to lean in and stroke it.
Or the cockatoo who constructs
a cage using a roll of metal wire.
They have had enough of
unchecked growth, abundance.
Their small red wet lungs are
happy to forgo songs unsung.
