“Bat Triptych by Phil, on Flickr”

This day has been trouble

and I ease along

birds fly in the scrapers

and take flight in form.


Hunting alone

being held down

From below they swarm

And we mirror up.


I may not add one hour to my life

but I can take one away pretty easily


This single hour

slips through my hands


This dark swarming we share,

Winged in black velvet




while above the birds fly in formation
