City of Wrens
(Sun Series #8)

The Hitchhiker

a silent cicada hitched a ride
on the back of my field shirt
he sat for hours on the bed
his tiny blood red eyes
at a loss for the familiar
in the stillness of a half-darkened room

when I went to hang up the shirt
I knew I must return him
to the open land of double rainbows
and many singing beaks
to his freedom and potential doom
