Language of the Miltonia
by Ernest Williamson III

I'm always placed by this bay window
sunlight teases my arms
breaks through nimbus clouds
when I dream
where I rest
in cahoots
with careless caretakers
though I like living
my voice seems to carry me through dastardly drones
and when I lament
my body bends downward
like unseen greed behind corporate doors
in flaming dirt
devoid of roots
and thus
not of kin
