About the bullets and the feathers

By Peycho Kanev

 

In times like these

is dangerous for you to confuse the bullets

with birds;

the bullet for example

have no heart nor feathers,

it doesn’t need no sky or white, mushy

clouds to feel alive,

it doesn’t nest in the trees

its nest is the human heart,

because of his habit to kill,

the bullet should not live;

but in times of war;

well, anyone has to learn

how to distinguish the voice of the bullet

from the voice of the bird,

one has to cherish the next dawn

as his last one,

has to understand the voices,

and that is only if he could understand

the birds.
