Earthbound Birds

these birds
have wings,
but cannot fly,
my friend says
that she is
too sly,
I do not
know what
problems
there might be

held on
the ground,
a scene
so epic,
you know
there is an
epidemic,
these birds
are earthbound,
and may
never fly again

my wings
are never
found or seen,
although
there have been
near-obscene
attempts
to learn
where they
might hide

gravity seems
like a law,
you cannot fly,
you cannot know,
it holds us down,
because the sky
is not our home,
we are just
earthbound things
