Her Starling Conscience

Her starling conscience

            flew away.

All those precious things

                        she said

Were just the nest

            from which she fled

                        with outstretched wings.

She neither wondered,

            nor pondered,

                        nor paused

                                    even a moment from her play.

She merely flew away.
