‘Precarious Migratory Spectacular’ by C. Murray

Stone weighting my palm
has sprung a cathedral

heart jumps
walking in the flesh of its surpassing grace
groin-vaulted and high as

no bird ever escaped to soar this
high-up—
seamless and

there is no blood
no feather
no bone—

stone cannot make the bird.
