Why did this big
Black bird
With a red beak
Have her feathery chest
Pressed on the glass
Of the fourth floor
As though
She were showing off a medal?

Why did the bird
Employ all her talons
And skills
To remain on the sill
At all cost?

Her head was turned
To the side
And with one round eye
She was peering in
As though through a microscope.
