Little Bird

If you are a big perch,
I am just a little bird.

If you are real,
I have so many wild dreams.

If you are brown,
I have borrowed rainbow colours.

If you know many songs,
I am yet to learn singing.

If your flowers are always pink
I like all that’s blue.

If your leaves love suicide
my feathers hatch fidelity.

If you are a swing
I’d love to swing a lifetime

and let the big gust
blow on, and on, and on.
