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

so proud-

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
little bird
