Circle and Swoop




hello bird high above
excuse me, I mean birds

free skating in the air

I can hear them spouting free verse

walt whitman, some carl sandburg

way over my head

what do you see up there

I’m sure you see better than me

gray and black colors

standing out; imposing against the wild blue 

and ash like white sky above and yonder 

back and forth you go

whaddya now, what do you know 

do you see what will happen 

know things that will happen 

are you telepathic?

silently you gracefully effortlessly sail

on waves of invisible thrust 

I know it’s magical, in magic I trust

I watch you circle and swoop

circle and swoop

you and your medium friends

in a superlative loop
