chatty birds

19 Jul

i could hear the seagulls as i left my house this morning

such chatty birds

listening in to all our conversations

even this far from the water

“one good hope come from this”

“it’s one red flag, he has no backup here”

the two humans seemed pleased

seagulls don’t like red flags nearly as much

such chatty birds

red flags say ‘go away, we don’t want you here!’

other conversations taking place too

in languages the seagulls could not understand

“pigeons everywhere, it is so disgusting” the gulls say

and the crows agree

loudly and without restraint

such chatty, raucous, nasty birds

listening in to what we say
