Sunset Hawk

I wonder if you think of me

if you see my face at all

I wonder if I’m on your thoughts

a flash of color at night

I wonder if you hear my name, do you think of my laugh?

I wonder if you’ll miss me soon

if you’ll wonder where I am

I want to know if I’m unjust

if I picked up and moved too fast

I’d ask you what you thought of me

but I don’t think you’d even recall

my feathers on your window

my perch right on your bed

I don’t think you’d even bother to see my jesses still sitting by your door

I wanted you to take me out

Not for you to leave me out.
