DANCE OF THE STARLINGS

DANCE OF THE STARLINGS

not in the air
on the broken concrete walk
near remnants of January ice
wings at it
flailing rapid circles
like grounded hummingbirds
twisting & bedding, twisting & bedding
one black ball of feathers
beaks at it
twisting & bedding
on the broken granite-hard walk
still for a moment
for a moment more
one black ball of wings
then off—
toward opposite
corners of sky
