Black Angel by David Subacchi

Who gathered this creature
Torn from the sky
By angry buckshot,
Hurled into the suction
Of chilling quicksand

Or did the wind
Playing tricks
Throw together
Wooden fragments
In the shape of a bird.

Some whisper of angels
And others of death,
We scratch our love
With fragile sticks,
Hope for the best.

By David Subacchi February 2020.
