Broken Blue Birds


How long has it been since you’ve heard those words?
How long has it been since you’ve said them--
To another man?
Another boy?
Another human?
body to body
mouth to mouth
man to man
Only I wasn’t a man
Are you my boy? you asked, I answered you but you never answered me
so answer me this:
How long has it been since you’ve heard those words?
the ones you keep caged with broken blue birds
and it feels as though my own wings are broken
from the words we both left unspoken
and if you’d like to share these words with me
I’d like to think they’d set you free
then perhaps we both would see
how much you really meant to me
