NATIVITY

listen: this is where i want to be born
kicking and drowning face-down
in a pool of cosmos, born
in a body woven by sparrows from sticks
and straw. i want to live
with birdsongs fluttering
in my chest. i want to pray
to a bone jutting through the sky, in a land

Read rest of poem by Daniel Blokh, age 14, at Gigantic Sequins.
