“a breeze on the air, a blue sky”
He sees birds playing through the trees
and remembers they exist
and hates their freedom.
Two lovers sit on a park bench
Two men who appear homeless

into the pond
for the ducks,
which a little boy scares away
The little girl hits him on the arm,
then cries and runs to her mother.
The little boy looks back at the ducks
