Authour’s note: a poem for day 24 of a month of poetry 2021. Today’s optional glopowrimo prompt was to find an encyclopedic type article about an animal & to replace words & phrases from the article with your own. Well that’s how I did it anyway, using the wikipedia article for sparrow. & I’m super tired today. You can read a more accurate description of the prompt at the glopowrimo day 24 page. I’m super stream of consciousnessy at the moment haha.

Please go read the poems  through the days on the glopowrimo site. There are lots of great poets & work. & please sign up for disqus (go here: https://disqus.com/ or you’ll see icons above each day’s comments) & upvote the poems you like. It’s a great way to support poetry month participants & to let us know what’s working with our poems as well as our responses to the prompts. 💜🎶🖋🌸🌷💌
