Chorus

By Mike Bell Poetry No comments

There is a constant rise
and fall of squabbles
between this variation
of rooks and songbirds

which was earlier today
played out in the shop
where pecking old women
disagreed in quick Hebrew

They found a sullen perch
to nudge within whilst queued
Here ruffled cotton feathers
were preened and re-aligned
