If There Are No Birds

Kristin Roedell

If there are no birds
all is still well.
God made the sea craft
prow dividing wind,
marlins soaring deep
into another sky,
leaves feathered ruffled
and sleek;

the language of the deaf,
fingers rising and settling.
Perhaps there are no birds,
only words that mean flight,
lift, ascend; when spoken,
a thing with wings appears

and even an unbelieving soul
sees birds as he pulls in his sails:
the white canvas floats,
the waves peak, the dolphins
swim in a v
the way geese fly.
