A Delicate Cage

What I release to the night

Let’s me wake in the morning

Where I’m light as a feather

And stiff as a board

Oblivious to the slow dying

That I keep in a delicate cage

With just enough space

And water

And love—to survive

    By the way, the “light as a feather stiff as a board” part made me automatically think of the movie The Craft.
