bird cage, bird cage door, would be golden and insulting

i catch her in mid-flight
mid
flight

towel wrapping from shower to bedroom
our
room
bed room

towel wrapping hair
wrapping
water drips
gathering sunlight
sun
blinds

mid-flight bird
pedestal stoop
kicked out
solid ground
even
ground
our ground

and i want to share her wings
her
wings
our wings

lower the sky
drip dry
the
sky in flight
leave
bird bath
front yard
bird
bath-sun-dried-flight
