my father and mother, left and right wings

they broke and badly mended
were spent but keep on going
i have tiny remote nude
clawed feet
so far away!
my breast is soft and round
but bone-light
white, hollow
and no hands or fingers
but molting feathers
is there really such

resignation in all flightless birds
beady of eye
and walking like
an egyptian
here you see
an ostrich, an emu
and a tubby penguin
popped in a suit
flying from some
nosediving sharks
