regret takes flight

i ofttimes feel
some ruinous presentiment
perched on my heart’s most
prominent bough – dusty
feathers freshly preened, neck
stretched out, talons dug hard
between splintered wood,
then;
a single shudder from
mighty wings
and the great Bird
of Regret heaves
itself into the air
and departs without fanfare –
flying contumaciously towards
other prey.
