Falcon
by Miss Emily Brown

Someday I will be a falcon,
not just any other bird.
I won’t be afraid of money,
I’ll always have a room and board.

Pick a card from the stack,
Woman of the Pentagons
with a Falcon on her shoulder,
a bunch of grapes in her palm.

Man around the campfire cries
We’re not dying when we go!
He was a priest, now a vendor
selling tickets at the show.

Smoke went straight up past Orion
Songs of wolves drowned out by cellos

Someday I will be a falcon,
not just any other bird.
I won’t be afraid of love or
any other ardent word.

Pick a card from the stack,
Scorpion comes your way
riding in on horseback
with an offer to make.

Michael takes someone’s hand,
disappears in the dark
and the children fall asleep
to the rhythm of the stars.

Smoke went straight up past Orion
Songs of wolves drowned out by cellos
Smoke went straight up past Orion
Violins and sweet packed pipes

Someday I will be a falcon,
not just any other bird.
I won’t be afraid of falling
in or out of any world.
