For the Birds

I give them all the space
I can manage
wobble along curbs
while motioning
I mean no harm

They don’t care
and I don’t blame them
there’s something silly
in the way I think
it makes a difference

Intention is my forte
and it’s important
for me to do this
a ritual ignorance
of nature made grey


One thought on “For the Birds

  1. I can literally see you doing this! I actually talk to them in gentle tones, hoping they won’t fly, wishfully proving myself some distant relative of St. Francis i suppose 🙂
