Catch Some Wide Eye

Perfect Feather


the instinct
to pluck you from the cold, lonely ground
as i would have done if this were years ago
removed from me by adult heart, adult mind
knowing the germs are too plentiful
the risks too great
but funny how the adult hearts, adult minds
not knowing the risks
in those ancient days
plucked feathers from the very sky
to adorn their dancing bodies
free in their ability to touch the earth
as a properly programmed adult
can no longer do

[Vaguely inspired by the song “Les Passants” by Zaz.]

      I didn’t understand it, either, until I searched for a translation of the lyrics. It’s basically about watching people passing by in the street and noticing how people wear masks and we judge others. She also touches on the passage of time and the human struggle to balance oneself. I love Brazilian music, so I’ll definitely look up Ceu.

      Thanks for stopping by, T! đŸ˜€

  2. Love the video…thanks for sharing it.
