swallow's throat twitching in laryngeal spasms.
when i whispered gently,
lips millimeters from its ear,
'you are mine; there is nothing you can do'
it struggled, beak clicking like talon-fingernails on porcelain
i didn't mean to let it free, i swear.
it beat me back with a single shining look;
beaded gaze bruising, breaking capillaries and
bringing blood to the surface.
i would have gotten a black eye if i wasn't careful.

LadyofGaerdon says:
"Clever text alterations, whimsical subject matter
and clear imagery make for a brisk, picturesque read."
Even grammatical errors cannot take away from the
charm of this poem. It is pleasing to the eye, the
tongue, and the heart.

Luxurious rhythm and hypnotic alliteration
are complimented, if not contrasted by disturbing
imagery in this extremely interesting prompt-inspired poem.
