    Speak

    The parrot is walking
    through the park
    the grass new under
    his feet, he has bored of
    the air above

    he checks his reflection
    in a puddle, and frowns
    at the mirrored sky

    he is beginning to like the feel
    of walking, and begins a little
    strut, oh yea - wings relaxed
    and folded

    he thinks, 'I am beautiful'
    the sun warms his back

    A few people are coming his
    way, and he's hurries
    towards them, moving his tongue
    about his mouth,
    there is something on his mind

    and as the people try to
    go around him, his beak opens and
    and words come out.

    Enjoyed it. The words of the parrot seem to be left to the imagination of the reader.
