a baby sparrow fell yesterday
from it's nest on the balcony above ours..
I got out a stool and some rubber gloves
so my scent wouldn't be on the poor thing,
got it back in its nest, and everything
but tonight I saw the sparrow again,
on the deck,
and it had died...
now I wonder,
did it fall again?
did its mother kick it out
from it smelling of rubber gloves?
would it still be alive if I'd left it
didn't mean to kill you
