The gulls on the windswept shore
Chittering amongst themselves
Old women at a rummage sale,
sorting through the broken lives
the unrealized hopes and aspirations
of others.
They scream at me
as I walk along their beach.
They question my sanity –
Those bitches.
How dare they?!?
After all,
They are just birds…
Aren’t they?
