i still don't know what
has become of this wood thrush.
he was flapping helplessly
on the sidewalk on fifth avenue
in front of the mid manhattan library.

a young woman had accessed the number
for animal rescue but had to go to work.
i called and was told that if i brought
the bird to an address on east 110th street
they could take care of it.

trying to corral it as people strode by
it kept flapping away - trying to fly
but going in low circles. a young man
stopped and marveled saying he thought
it was a thrush. i told him that if we could
get it into my tote bag i would bring it uptown.

he cupped it in his hands, we got it into
my tote bag and i took a couple of buses
to 110th street only to be told that they don't
deal with birds. they sent me across town
to animal general at columbus avenue and 87th street
where i surrendered him to be brought to
this facility

i've called a couple of times
to get an update, to find out
whether his wing was injured as i suspected,
to find out if he'd been released
into the wilds of
central park.

haven't heard back as yet.
