little birds

on my way into teach at the SMFA this morning — 3 little birds flew down + looked in at me from the vantage of my hood + windshield wipers

i felt a bit like Saint Francis of Assisi or something, just sitting in his Honda Accord, watching my little flightful friends of nature, their shiny eyes filled with reflections of the surrounding city — the memories + daydreams of a life where the sky swims between buildings in the urban landscape spinning in the highlights of their eyes — hollow bones, feathers of dusty earthtones + greys — their little oval heads crooking this way + that — they seemed so innocent + happy, like bandits running through a decrepit mall caught on fire

this was the highlight of my day
