Of Bird, String, & Fables by Joshua Marie Wilkinson

            ***

Couldn’t you see the ending before it unraveled you?
        Would you mind lying down first?
        Did you come by foot over the new bridge?            

            ***

Here where the poem becomes
                                               ladders again,
        the little girl returned with candy
        & a nearly on her lips.
