a breeze on the air, a blue sky

“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

grotesquely kissing.

Two men who appear homeless

wrestle over an empty bottle.

A third man throws

chess pieces at them.

A little girl throws breadcrumbs

into the pond

for the ducks,

which a little boy scares away

with rocks.

The little girl hits him on the arm,

then cries and runs to her mother.

The little boy looks back at the ducks

swimming away.
