Tiny black bird returns at night
To sit on clothesline to pretend
It is a flesh’s underwear to sun.
There is inner limit to pretend
How much to dry by sun if wet,
To decide when it is bones dry.
Bird, when it is due to pretend,
Returns to clothesline at night.
It has to pretend for the night.
Bird pretends to be underwear
And manages to dry by a night.
Bird just pretends night is day.
