An angel stumbled through the sky and landed
on my wrist, it gazed up at me with golden eyes.
It didn't know, I think, of what it was.
When I nudged its wings, those eyes
brimmed with tears
and my hand jerked back.
I asked a question, but it
shuddered in silence
so I whispered, but in that instant a breeze
swept through and brushed it off my wrist.
For a moment
it flew.
