Cormorant

The cormorant inside my head
peers at the one in my heart.
It shakes its beak,
gestures with its wings
that it’s time to open, to fly. 

The cormorant inside my heart
calls back: Run, but a cormorant 
can’t run. Hide, it calls, 
but such a bird can’t hide. 
Fight. It flexes its wings wide.
