Me and My Feather Duster

by Kyle Anne Kish

Oh to fly again
my dear feather duster
do you miss cruising
the sky .... flying high?

Your plumage is so dark.
Were you a turkey or a lark?
Can I make you once again
a pheasant or a wren 
in the sky ... flying high?

Were I to cut your feather’s loose
attach a head and a caboose
would you, once more,
be in the sky ... flying high?

But for now, the day won’t come
where you bask out in the sun
without an extension handle.
To fly again is too much a gamble,
in the sky ... flying high.

So you and I were meant to be
alone in both our misery.
You shall never fly ... fly high,
nor will I.

In the sky ... flying high?
Phooey, it’s not all
it’s cracked up to be,
at least, not for you and me.

This is not such a terrible plight
since you and I are afraid of height.
We’ll sit on the porch ... your extension
handle wrapped in my arm,
and woo each other with delightful charm.
