Birds out Here

Ours is a hometown

where the birds just walk,

their tender legs barely supporting

the rest of their weight

 

They steal water from starving grasses

and halt near the shopkeepers,

fluttering their eyes for food

When refused, they remember to take flight,

flapping their wings furiously

over the hostile humans

and soaring far above,

a spectacle of their superior powers
