Kathleen McClung - "Behind the White Bird"

Which one of us
holds tighter - you,
timid cockatiel, tall
as a snowman, crown
of green tendrils
curving above our heads?

Or me,
ruby red party dress
spraying past
my hairless thighs
into our kaleidoscope
of a room?

Entranced, claw
to wrist, I give you
a secret name,
whisper into your ear
a charm, a promise
I will break.

One palm
sinks in feathers,
the other, chiffon.
My lips, for now, press
only your white pillow skull.
We do not fly or sing.
