The Open Cage

If by borrowed nature you were to pounce
And claim a sorry bird with tooth and claw

Learning the hard way of its hollow self
Both of you surprised and you unfulfilled

I would stand here flightless and marrow-boned
Within your grasp as you nap like a cat

Patiently waiting to be devoured
