Log of Dead Birds
A wing as a bird.
A wing that catches the wind like the end of a conversation
and responds this way.
When I say bring your arm to bed
the invitation’s extended to the not-arm of you.
My body is less polite. 
A wing as a mouth you con me with.
I enact a minnow-shaped cabin you press into.
We plane.

Whose resistance feigns air flight demands?
