Fit Audience by Marie Ponsot

Fit Audience

(andante cantabile:
G sharp is not G natural)
Mozart and his starling
both loved to whistle.
What a pair.

Maybe for just this once
in our history of Bird
we can forgive the uncaged cager.
Our god-besot Mozart
bought it caged it kept it,
a fabulous singer
priceless but with useless wings.
When it sang out
loud, careless, impetuous,

Mozart’s shoulder blades ached
        but he heard it sing.
