Why did the bird perch over the same flower?
suckling deep inside
only to return in a few seconds
and ignore other dazzling beauties nearby
The bird visited everyday
squealing shrilly at competition
chasing feathered companions
The bird returned even after
the flower faded away
nibbling the stem
and pecking the thorns furiously
calling for the flower piteously
with its blood-soaked beak
