circumstance of gravity

April 10, 2012 § 3 Comments

they gather there
the pigeons
the gulls
below statues of
our cities revolutionary heroes
crowd sourcing a solution
concerning the consumption
of scraps discarded
by the lunchtime throng
that pours from
offices when the weather
deems it possible
they, both those with wings
and those without,
dance around each other
all squabbling in their own
language – until the wingless
are sucked back into
the towers
disappearing like light
succumbing to the
circumstance of gravity
