Burden’s Branch

flock of normal birds call boy
worst names dug up from worst
holes in a sunless war to
end all worlds,

crows peck out boy’s glass buttons
with hooked beak points and
razor words.

so let’s belt out all the normal songs
with jumbled words ’til whole
damn tune comes off
wrong,

boy tweaks some knobs and sings
his way thru the clouds of
own hushed song
.
