Grandma's Parakeet

tiny weight of grandma’s parakeet
on my finger
spider leg toes
bones enclosed in skin 
the curved pins the claws
that grip my finger
balancing its wiry weight
of beak and wings

the feathered fan of tail 
pulling downward
balances the body full of webs of bones
like veins inside my eye

delicate bones

like grandma herself
thin and fragile
with holy hair
thick and white 
it fans like feathers
in my dreams
