Just ‘Cos

What did you do?

There were no doubt options here,

other syntaxes and quickenings were readily available

that you could have soared with, stolen like the magpie.

Perhaps a gesture of some sort,

a bow,

a humility,

a something that would make others blink

maybe even think

that this bird? Yeah she knows where she’s at.


Why did you do?

It could be argued a fault not your own,

a wayward gesture

that caught itself in the act,

that shipped itself first class

some kind of altered position

which showed a meekness not this bleakness,

this beakless,

unwinged thing,

but there be a reason, a choice you could have unmade,

yet in the nodding of it all, we both know you wouldn’t have.
