The Taser's Edge

Wanting to Post but Having Only Poetry, I Have Decided to Post Poetry

Is it a death by transparency
Or suicide by self-admiration?

I caught myself

At the last moment and
Pulled away to sky last night;
I flew straight into the sun and fell burning.
Now I find myself yearning
To discover
This life as bird and I
Lie down together.
In my ascent, might I have clipped clear glass
And fallen just a few feet down?
Why, then, do I have these wings
When I can only hop upon the ground?

Comments and critique are definitely welcome.
