Redesigning Birds

As I was shaving in the shower,
I looked out the window onto
the
so full of sunlight and texture
back yard
and watched one
of your cats
redesigning birds.

Cat, Bird.
Bird, Cat.
A million times Bird lands.
A million times Cat catches Bird, or not. 

Bird is feeding Cat, but also more.
Cat is teaching Bird never to land.
Someday, Bird will stay off the ground forever.
On that day, Cat will grow wings.

So Cat is teaching Bird how not to die.
In return, Bird is teaching Cat how to fly. 

As I was shaving in the shower,
I learned both of these things.
