The birds
Grey with ruffled feathers
Sit on one wire
Electricity pumping
From end to end
Without stirring them
From there
Against the backdrop
Of pink sky
To blue sky
They can coo and chitter
A safe distance
From the hot red lawnmowers
Oh, the things they must talk about
The not so scarcity of cats
How to best preen the feathers
How to trill in toon
The best places
To catch a crumb
Like housewives
With nothing to do
They sit there all day
Gossiping happily
Talking about
Which bird did what
Yet not stepping on
Both wires
