you are not a bird / Emily Jern-Miler

cow bones you wear while daylight
Inside, honey in all its variations.
Marrow that knows more of kites
than we think: lopsided soaring
chattering with other hopes.
Fragrances best belong to the blood.
How proudly strands decorate
a feeble skin. Reel and float.
I point with twenty seven parts of me
while thinking about a single thing.
Beak, longing, precise bloom.
There are other raised surfaces
I've visited: cities, exits, awe.
