Swarm

“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

Unthinking

Dark

 

while above the birds fly in formation
