Blue Jay in The Night

To love a Blue Jay with a broken wing
I do not fly
I do not sing

I ask so much and give so little 
You dance for me and I play a fiddle

So little to gain
So much to hide

To love a Blue Jay with a broken wing
I do not fly
I do not sing

    I like this Lauren. At first sight it has a great simplicity to it but reading it again I was struck by the thought that went into both the narrative and the layout of the poem. the repete of the first stanza works really well and creates a sort of wholeness to the poem.
