struggles for the black bird

turn your head to the left a little further than you normally would. see the black bird perched on your shoulder with bleak black eyes strung in its head like beads. love and care for that bird, but do not remove him from your shoulders.

cry at night, or in the day if you can’t contain it, and be sure the bird hears you. tell it it’ll all be alright. feed it. do not remove him from your bedroom.

keep that bird on you through good and bad, mostly bad if you can manage it. keep him for as long as you like. you will feel better after he has a few sips of water. love and care for that bird, and keep him on your shoulders.

a day will come when you no longer need that black bird with eyes strung in its head like beads, and on that same day he will no longer need you. remove him from your shoulders.

then feed him to the black cat.
