in a silent way he was born with only one
never could fly away with it
always slow awkward circles
half walking
half falling
so he tore it off
traded it for experience points
in the game of life
and had an interesting scar
to field questions about
at bareback gatherings
why yes
i used to have a wing there
but i couldn't fly
and what do you do for a living?
what's it to you?
who go
