Where No Bone Had Flown Before

by Philip F De Pinto

To this bird
Freedom meant
Pulling up stakes
Of love's gravity
For the sake of freeing up
Bones - to go where no bones
Had flown before

For this bird
Love was just another word
For down time

To this other bird however
Freedom meant
Taking on more of love's gravity
Not yanking up stakes
For flight's sake

That such gravity might become
The ballast of a grave stone
To seep
Further down into the bone

In fact freedom meant no more to this bird
Than to becoming a flightless bird
A dodo in fact and extinct - extinct
Which is the only way to deal with gravity
When it is love's
