lyrics – excerpt – Orpheus Descending – Tennessee Williams
you know they’s a kind of bird that don’t have legs
so it can’t light on nothing
but has to stay all its life on its wings in the sky?
That’s true. I seen one once,
it had died and fallen to earth and it
was light blue colored and its body was tiny as your little finger,
that’s the truth, it had a body as tiny as your little finger
and so light on the palm of your hand
it didn’t weigh more than a feather,
but its wings spread out this wide but they was transparent,
the color of the sky and you could see through them.
That’s what they call protection coloring.
Camouflage, they call it.
You can’t tell those birds from the sky
and that’s why the hawks don’t catch them,
don’t see them up there in the high blue sky
near the sun!
