Have you ever thought about how steady a bird’s heartbeat must be when they’re dipping, diving, and bouncing through the air?
I saw a bird outside flying but it kept dipping like it was bouncing up and down, up and down
And I thought about how our hearts shake when we ride roller coasters
Or kiss our beloveds
And how either birds are junkies stuck on a God-given high or their hearts are more sober than ours ever will be
But oh to have the heart of a bird
Steady as the line kissing my shoulder to my knuckles
When anxiety sings the song Trigger Happy
And I dive low before the next time
I’m coasting on the air
