Silence

August 13, 2012

Pigeons, we are — lost in the subway tunnel.
Seeking fellow birds to help us climb stairs with our heavy wings.
Unimpressed new yorkers step daintily aside;
No use gasping for breath here.

We all have to hop our way out the labyrinth
or risk being seduced
by electrocuted bread crumbs.
