POEM -- "Bird in a Room" by Thomas Herr

I wrote this little piece in 1980. For reasons I keep to myself, this poem is pertinent to me today.

Bird in a room

By Thomas Herr

Awaken your thirsty soul,
Beggar Jack.
Helplessly, I watch as you struggle
In panic
To reach the edge of your circle.

Like a Butterfly in gusty wind
Or a bird,
Trapped in a room.

  1. Was intrigued by the title. The poem, too, intrigues. And so serves its intended and intended purposes. And so cool!
